We unlock the historic treasures in the Museum of Printing and make them available to loan to schools as the beginnings for students to create artworks from. The entire school may participate with students, teachers and support staff benefiting from the program. A kit remains with the school along with a printing press (upon request) for up to 3 months.
Museum Of Printing:
Museum of Printing houses a historically significant collection of printing machinery and equipment which comprise the FT Wimble & Co. Collection. The collection includes printing presses, a Linotype machine, guillotines, book binding equipment, wooden and metal type and a history of printing in Australia from 1850 to the early 1900s. The Museum of Printing is now the home of the Black Gully Printmakers, a community of artists and print enthusiasts.
