WORKSHOP

ACQUAFORTE ETCHING 101

Alessandra e Andrea, chalcography

120

In this workshop I'll guide you through the process of making a copper mold that will be used in the printing phase! I will then let you know the technique of chalcographic incision called "acquaforte". All the steps of the process will be carried out following the oldest and most traditional technique. You will make a drawing of your choice that will be placed on a small copper slab. You will then engrave this plate with a metal scriber after having covered it with a layer of hot wax. We will create channels out of the traces you had drew and engraved where we will deposit some ink. This will bring us to the inking stage. Then, finally, we will print our design on engraving paper using the chalcographic press. You get to keep the matrix you made and the print!

Andrea, paper maker

(The workshop will be held in Summer 2021) The Aremu association and Gruppo Cubiarte present to you a fascinating journey in learning how to make paper. In the itinerary we have put together the ancient Washi technique (oriental paper from the Han dynasty, 200 d.c.), with the medieval fabrianesi techniques (XIII century) we will also create paper from natural fibers extracted from Mediterranean plants. The course will be divided as follows: 1. Selection and picking of the natural fibers (common fig plant) 2. Skinning phloem 3. Beating and washing the cellulose paste 4. Creating the paper in a basin 5. Sieving and calendering 6. Distillation of the garriga vapors to perfume our sheets of paper 7. Coloring techniques with natural pigments: ficus carica leaves
