Steamroller Printing

Martha Street Studio, a community-based printmaking studio run by the Printmakers Association of Manitoba, recently had their second "Under Pressure" Steamroller Print Festival.

For the past two years Martha Street Studio has hosted 'Under Pressure', Winnipeg's only Steamroller Print Festival. High school students, community groups, and artists from across Winnipeg create large linoleum carvings leading up to the festival. On the day of the festival the carvings are inked and printed with the aid of a real steamroller.

This footage shows steamroller printing from another event: the 4th annual wayzgoose small press gathering.

Also, check out this slide show of the Imagine RIT Innovation and Creativity Festival's own steamrolling art. They also used skateboards and breakdancing!
