Seaside Steam Print

Seaside Steam Print


Seaside Steam Print, a new community arts event for all will bring steamroller printing to the streets of Eastbourne this summer in an afternoon of steam and spectacle on Sunday 10th September on Marine Parade Rd, by the Crown and Anchor pub – in the Seaside end of town.

Members of the public are invited to make their own prints at the event, which can be taken home or included in an exhibition. A 12.5-tonne vintage steamroller will be used on the day as a giant printing press, with the road closed and transformed into a public printmaking area. Paper, ink, rollers and paintbrushes will all be provided. It’s FREE to attend and helpers will be on hand to give hints and tips about the printmaking process.

The 90 year-old steamroller will be driven by owner Chris Hale, who bought and restored the vehicle back to its former glory in 2010. It averages five mph, uses one ton of coal to do 60 miles, and 80 gallons of water to do ten miles.

People can also come down to see the printmaker Hugh Ribbans, who has been making and exhibiting prints for over 25 years, put his large animal linocuts under the steamroller.
