Parents and pupils of Whitton and Whitehouse primary schools in North West Ipswich were delighted, on Friday 24th March 2017, to be at Whitehouse school playground to see the Roller Event which was part of the Bigger Picture Printmaking Project. This Project was funded by North West Ipswich Big Local Trust and Councillor James Crossley and was run by Oyster Press for local school children to learn the art of lino printing in their classrooms over a period of six weeks. They learnt the history of printing and researched many ideas to create lino prints to show aspects of their school or their community. These lino prints were designed to be printed onto two large banners which would be hung in the schools. As Whitehouse school had a two tonne road roller in the playground Oyster Press used this to roll over the lino prints. After a short holdup with the road roller the printing of the banners were completed and everyone thought the banners were a great success for all involved.

Thanks go to the Ipswich Star too for celebrating our latest community success!
