25—26 APR 2020


In this intensive workshop we will learn about manual printing processes with stamps, using traditional engraving techniques adapted to accessible resources (easy to reproduce in a small workshop or at home). From a small selection of details extracted from the illustrations of the Museo ABC, we will work with engraving and carving techniques on different surfaces and materials. We will learn to make photoengraving and stamping, mastering the use of different inks. We will finish the workshop by acquiring some basic notions of repetition of a motif and patterns.

– Presentation of manual printing processes.
– Carved seals I.
– Pigments, inks and stamping surfaces.
– Carved seals II.
– Photoengraving I and II.
– Manual stamping and repetition.

This workshop is designed to teach and practice all the stages of the creative process. The Collection of the Museo ABC will be used as a guide and inspiration for the program.

All the necessary materials and tools will be provided by the Museum, as well as two notebooks and an organic and fair-trade tote bag.

THE TEACHERS: FÁBRICA DE TEXTURAS (Madrid, 2012) is a design studio that was born for the experimentation and dissemination of plastic arts through the philosophy «Do It Yourself». They research and develop traditional techniques in order to turn them into current design tools available to everyone through their DIY KITS and their workshops. In addition to the dissemination of the technique, they offer very special tools and materials that are the result of a careful search that leads them to collaborate with local projects and producers. They design products for pedagogical, but also aesthetic, reasons.
