The steamroller linocut printing event is just a day away now. I can’t wait! I’ve printed lino with a steam roller before, but this is a proper old, coal-fired one. It’s going to take an hour to just heat the engine enough to move it and then it has to be driven ten miles to Cassington, where we are doing the event. And it only goes a bit faster than walking speed!
The event is free and open to all. Come and have a go at carving your own linocut, have a go at inking up a block or just watch as we use eight tons of antique iron and steel as a makeshift printing press!
There will be refreshment available to buy as well as a very limited number of Linocutboy tea-towels, with funds raised going towards the restoration of the church bells.
This is also your last chance to catch the exhibition I’ve curated at HemingwayArt, Linoleum: The Cutting Edge which ends on Sunday.
