Around 2,000 printmaking fans packed into the venue which organisers said broke all records for sales with exhibitors shifting around £80,000 worth of work.

The festival welcomed 44 top artists from around the country who displayed their work in various spaces across the venue, whilst visitors enjoyed a wide-range of workshops, talks and exhibitions from local schools.

A spokesperson for Printfest said: “Visitors’ feedback from the event reflects the high calibre of printmaking talent seen in 2024, with ‘the amazing standard and creativity’ among the highlights for attendees.

"The art was described as ‘mind-blowing’, ‘incredible’ and ‘beautiful’ - we can’t wait for next year already."
