HOW THE EXPERIENCE WILL BE

Ready for a full immersion day in the world of printmaking? You'll be welcomed in the printing lab, a beautiful shop located right in the middle of Vicenza, more precisely in an old palace.
You'll have the chance to visit the lab, the showrooms and the archive, full of testimonials left from countless artists dating all the way back to 900. Next, you'll be introduced to the three main printing techniques: chalcography (dry tip), litography and xilography. With the help of Giancarlo you'll follow all the main steps of the printing process: from wetting the paper to the final authentication of the completed print. Lunch will be the perfect opportunity to have a nice walk around the Palladium city and to taste the typical baccalà fish together. At the end of the day every participant will be given a copy for every printing technique used.

SOME TIPS

Put on something disposable as you'll probably get dirty working with ink. An apron and all the materials will be provided by the workshop.
Bring a lot of curiosity and proactivity!
