HOW THE EXPERIENCE WILL BE

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!

SOME TIPS

Six hours workshop.
Lunch break: h 13.00-14.30
The laboratory supplies all the materials and equipment needed to carry out the workshop, including gloves and apron.
Warm clothing is recommended during the winter months.

WORKSHOP

EVOLUTION OF A PAPER SHEET

Alessandra e Andrea, chalcography

80

Andrea will lead you into a multi-dimensional world made of paper! He will tell you what Kirigami is. Briefly, it's an Eastern technique for working with paper and consists in carving and folding sheets to get two-dimensional shapes. The meaning of the term comes from the Japanese "kiru", cut and "kami", paper. Andrea will teach you the basic ways of folding paper in order to get to at least one of the original Kirigami. To learn more about the Kirigami and Pop-Up techniques we have, on request, twelve hours courses that last two days.
