PRESSing matters


Event Description:

Watch as large woodcuts are inked and pressed by a two-ton steamroller and make your own small relief prints!
Local printmakers, working with schools and businesses prior to the event, will hand carve large-scale images onto relief blocks. During the event, ink will be rolled over the blocks, which will be covered by dampened muslin and then run over by a steamroller to transfer the images to the cloth.
Ivy Tech printmaking students, with assistance from Arts for Learning’s teen artists, will supervise hand-printing stations where visitors are given the opportunity to imitate the steamroller process on a smaller scale by creating simple relief prints that can be taken home.
Join this extraordinary experience built on the collaborative efforts between human and machine power! 

Walk-ins welcome, but RSVPs encouraged.

Presented by Arts for Learning, Ivy Tech Community College Central Indiana, Cat Head Press, Indianapolis Art Center, and Insight Development Corp. (Indpls Housing Agency).
