A great day out at Ditchling Museum with the 

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.
