INFORMATION ABOUT THE PROJECT

Objective of the Exhibit

The interactive exhibition “Printing Playground” represents various types of print to visitors. It awakens fantasy in the little printers in combining several techniques and shows the possibilities of transferring colour on paper, fabric or walls.

Basic Description of the Exhibit

There are several independent stations where children and adults alike can try various methods and forms of printing, learn about history of printing or put themselves in the place of Johannes Gutenberg, the inventor of book printing. You can learn about screen printing, book printing, old typewriters, printing on fabric, stamp production or monotype but the greatest attraction of the exhibit where printing ink plays the main role is a special room where there are no rules and where you can print on anything.

Have you ever thought about what it is like to grab a stamp, dip it in ink and improve the boring wall in your living room? Well, that is not allowed? Mom and dad would get mad? You are probably right but there are some better ways to free the sudden creativity impulse and the mood to discover something new. But, what if… what if it was possible?
