Makers Faire Milwaukee

Last week we were invited by the PRINT CLUB of the University of  Wisconsin Milwaukee to set up our POW next to their Steamroller Printmaking event. It was scheduled as a two-day event.

We loaded up our etching press, and our paper press and drier system. Our POWvehicle lumbered up to Milwaukee from our base in Kenosha, making it our longest trip to date. November we'll drive it to Madison for two weekends for a papermaking event with veterans. More to come on that.

Watching young people respond to prints and printmaking is always a joy.

CCR had their relief and paper maker station and the UWM PNF students had their steamroller large scale print and block printing station set up and we printed up a storm. 

We printed so much, that it did in fact storm, which meant the next day we would set up our printmaking tents indoors, sans steamroller and papermaking activities.

 After showing hundreds of people what we do we loaded up our POW and headed back to Kenosha.
