Matrix, ink, press: discovering the engraving


designed by Barbara Viale

The first phase of the workshop will be devoted to a theoretical explanation of the many engraving techniques used from the Middle Ages to the present day. The participants will approach in a more stimulating way the materials, tools and techniques that are at the origin of the prints and the engraved matrices. In the second phase they will directly experiment the preparation and realization of a wooden matrix and the subsequent inking and printing stages of the press.
