Come and see the world’s longest linocut which was made as a celebration of teamwork for the Rugby World Cup 2015. Printed in Newcastle city centre using a rugby scrum machine and teams of rugby players, this 33 metre long linocut was created by over 1000 children and adults across England and Wales with contributions from all twenty competing nations. This ambitious collaboration brought together the network of print studios across England and Wales to secure the official Guinness World Record for this epic scale linocut.
