On Saturday September 16, from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm Truro Center for the Arts at Castle Hill will be hosting the second annual Steamroller Printmaking Extravaganza at Edgewood Farm!   This event is FREE and open to the public.

This unique event uses an actual steamroller, yes the kind you see doing road work, to work as a press would when making a print.  You ink up your block, position your paper and get the steamroller ready!  After the steamroller glides over your block, you will unveil a truly unique print.

For those of you experienced printmakers, this is a great opportunity to print those large-scale blocks you have been waiting for just the right time to print!  And for those of you who are new to printmaking, come see this exciting event and experience carving and printing your own creation.

There will be vegetable carving for printmaking, for the younger audience. All ages and experience levels are welcome for this community event.

This event is a wonderful opportunity to see the new print studio as well as find out more about our print co-op program. 

The event is sponsored by Printmakers of Cape Cod and Truro Center for the Arts at Castle Hill.  Truro, Wellfleet and Eastham Cultural Councils and the Massachusetts Cultural Council provided funding for this event.
