Big Steam Print Auction

The Big Steam Print events that took place in the summer may be well and truly over, but here’s your opportunity to buy a piece of print history. Many of our Big Steam Print artists have kindly given us permission to auction the original prints created on one of the five event days via eBay. The first batch of prints is now live (see details below), and will continue to be auctioned in small batches over the coming weeks. All proceeds will go to the museum, meaning we can continue to provide keep providing our programme of fun, free, events.

The varying sized linocut and woodcut works were printed on GF Smith 320gsm paper and will be listed for auction at the end of October. With prints from artists including Jonny Hannah, Louise Hayward, Mark Hearld, Anita Klein, Angie Lewin, Linocut Boy, Freddie Robbins, Rob Ryan and Jo Sweeting this is a great opportunity not to be missed.
