Easter Monday at Amberley Museum was a fantastic day with many great activities.

The Big Steam Print run by Ditchling Museum of Art + Craft was launched in style, involving well known artist Jonny Hannah, Brownies, local school children, Solent University students and Sussex artists Francis Emerald and Claire Perkins, making some of the largest lino prints ever produced, using a steam roller as a printing press!

The project raised over £12,500 in just a month earlier this year, and during 2016 will also visit the London Transport Museum’s Acton Depot, Brighton as part of Brighton Festival and the village fair in Ditchling. Prints made during the project will be exhibited at the Phoenix Gallery in Brighton from August 6 to 21.

Other activities at Amberley Museum included Easter trails, a traditional fairground, Hawking About’s owls and birds of prey, rides on a steam train on the narrow gauge railway and all the other activities and exhibitions at the Museum.
