The magic of printing is usually hidden in the sheds, workshops and studios of printers and designers. The Big Steam Print brings the secret into the open air for everyone to witness as artists and students from across the country come together for the opportunity to print on a giant scale with our vintage steam roller. Join the excitement as artists including Angie Lewin, Rob Ryan and Anthony Burrill produce their biggest ever prints in a heady haze of steam and printing ink.
Contribute to the design of a giant linocut at Ditchling Museum of Art + Craft each weekend in May. Carve your own designs into a collaborative piece to be printed during the Big Steam Print at Ditchling Village Fair on 18 June.
Prints which survive the pummelling of tons of steel on tarmac will form the Big Steam Print exhibition at Phoenix Gallery in Brighton: 6– 21 August.
