Steamroller Printing with Articulate Ink
Date and time
The Docks at Local Market YQR
Offered in English.
As a part of Culture Days Saskatchewan 2019, Articulate Ink, in partnership with the Saskatchewan Arts Alliance (SAA), CARFAC SASK and the Regina's Warehouse District are bringing printmaking to the Queen City in a BIG WAY – steamroller printing!
During this unique event on large 2' x 4' wood blocks, which have been pre-carved by artists MOhadese MOvahed and Phyllis Poitras - Jarrett prior to the event, are inked up and printed in the streets with a steamroller. Spectators are invited to watch as prints are pulled.
There will also be a hands-on relief printing station where attendees will have a chance to try their hand at relief printing on a smaller scale and the SAA will be running a button making station as well.
