Art Factory

Art Factory 1500x600.png

Art Factory We are the makers, painters, printers and sewists. We produce the hand-made objects used by XR on a massive scale, from factories across the UK.

We produce patches by the thousands, we make flags, we paint banners and we encourage people to use their bodies as rebellious spaces to continually demonstrate, communicate and create conversations.

Our aim is to support XR national, regional and local actions, as well as sister movements and Movement of Movements by providing an endless flow of beautiful objects and passing on the skills to encourage others to do the same. We are here to provide help you may need doing that.

Because items take time to manufacture (if they don't already exist) the sooner you can get designs agreed and to your maker team the better.


The Art Factory needs at least 3 weeks lead time to make your art assets. The Art Factory does not make spicy objects. The messaging and colour palette of the action should be devised with Media & Messaging before it comes to the Art Factory. We do not create the messaging for your action. The core Art factory is in London, with additional Art factories around regions/nations. Creative Circle works with us to develop UK art groups, prototypes, performance groups and serve XRUK actions and outreach: Contact the UK Creative Circle: The Art Factory crew also organise UK Art Blockers.
