The museum was host to the Big Steam Print and featured many artists work in both wood, type and linocuts.
The engine fires up and toots a whistle then it majestically rolls along over the artwork, which is protected by a rubber carpet thing. The crowd then gets the magic of the reveal as a beautiful print emerges from pristine white paper to many oohs and ahhs.
Some of the artists listed: Anthony Burrill, Pat Randell, Thomas Mayo, Edward Tuckwell, Rob Ryan, Typoretum, Ben Coode-Adams, Freddie Robins, Angie Lewin, Print Wagon – Aidan, Jo Sweeting, Jeremy Radvan and Caroline Dunning.

Visit Ditchling Museum – it features the work of Eric Gill, Edward Johnston (London Underground Type) and Edith Mairet (Vegetable dyes and weaving) to name but a few. They have a nice tearoom and shop with type related items.
