Printmaker Road Show Concept


It's like a traveling circus, except instead of dangerous trapeze acts and wild animals, visitors see artisans and artists in action.

This is a stage for everything from traditional, hand-made prints, press-making, book arts, papermaking and on to 3-D printing and games of all kinds.
