Saturday, July 23, 2022
The Artisan & Makers Market is teaming up with Chicago Printmakers Collaborative on Saturday, July 23 when they will be hosting their MONSTER TRUCK MASH: A Steamroller Printing Festival. The Artisan & Makers Market will run it's normal time from 10am - 2pm in the Ainslie Arts Plaza and the Monster Truck Mash will take place across the street from 11am - 5pm.
What is a steamroller printing???? So glad you asked! It’s essentially traditional woodblock relief printing, but on a massive scale. At the festival, they’ll be inking up carved woodblocks as large as 24 square feet. Once covered in ink, large bolts of fabric will be laid on top of the blocks, and then they’ll run the whole thing over with an industrial steamroller. Think of it like a rubber stamp that you need ten people, a whole driveway, and construction equipment to print!
