STOWE, VT: No Kidding - There Will be a Steamroller

Steamroller Printmaking Workshop
August 18, 9 am to 4 pm
Price: $10

A number of artists, some of whom have work in the current "IMPRESSED: Vermont Printmakers Exhibit," will create large scale prints using a steamroller as the pressing agent. Printing "plates" will be created using a variety of materials from plywood to metal and found objects. These will then be "inked" and lined up on the pavement for the steamroller to roll over and press the image into the paper.

People are encouraged to come observe this unique and exciting process. Part of the fun in any printmaking endeavor is the unexpected results that occur from this process. By the end of the day, it is hoped that observers will be able to participate in making a print themselves.

This event is part of Impressed Vermont Printmakers 2012.
