This Awesome Project will help bring portable printing presses to the communities surrounding Truckee. Provisional Press (artist Steve Garst) has open-sourced a printing press, it's relatively inexpensive compared to traditional presses, and I want to create a collection of them to use at community events and workshops. Printmakers from around the country have worked towards creating a better press since I first built mine two years ago, and this grant would allow me the opportunity to remake it, create 'portable' printmaking workshops, and experiment with Lego relief prints. I will donate one completed press and Lego dot collection to the Truckee Roundhouse.
