Discover the process of printing large-scale relief cuts using a steamroller as a massive makeshift printing press! Full Steam Ahead is free to attend at RAM’s Wustum Museum, 2519 Northwestern Avenue, on Saturday, August 12, 10:00 am – 4:00 pm.
Relief printing is a process where a design is carved into wood, or a similar material, to make a protruding surface that can be inked and printed on paper or fabric. The process of printing relief cuts using a steamroller offers an over-the-top spectacle for both participants and viewers. The resulting new pieces will be available for purchase alongside a selection of the artists’ existing work. Proceeds benefit both the artists and RAM’s Wustum Museum.
