I will show you the entire work that there is behind an art print: from the initial drawing to the final print, I will show you a couple of videos, then I will explain the steps it takes to get a chalcographic print, until you have the actual print in front of you (DURATION: 20 MINUTES). You can meet me at my print house in Cannaregio district, in Fondamenta dei Ormesini, and attend a whole print session with me: you’ll be surprised by the atmosphere, the colors, the scents, the gestures, the work that there is behind a single print. IMPORTANT: This is just a 20 minutes demonstration: participants will not have an active part in the demonstration, they will only be able to watch and ask questions, of course!
My name is Arianna and I am the owner of Plum Plum Creations, a small print house in the historic center of Venice (Cannaregio district) where I create art prints (intaglio, linocut) all handmade with a chalcographic press and a vertical press. I attended the Academy of Fine Arts in Venice and my dream has always been to be able to deepen and develop the printing techniques that I have learned and also to be able to offer those who have a passion for art and craftsmanship the opportunity to learn these ancient techniques of etching and engraving.
The workshop will take place in my studio in Fondamenta dei Ormesini, Venice, a few steps from the Jewish Ghetto. The studio is not very big, but it is very welcoming and characteristic - you will be surprised!
