If you read this, prints not dead.
When we discuss about engraving art we describe the process through which artists firstly design, secondly engrave on a hard surface & finally print the engraved design on one or more copies.
The main purpose of P.N.D Workshop is to push participants to get acquainted with the art of engraving. More specifically, the holistic exploration of an analog printing process, starting from the creation of the engraving piece ending to the appearance of the final printed artwork, is perhaps the most efficient way to obtain an essential contact with this specific printing technique. The participant after the workshop will be able to evaluate & appreciate the importance of using traditional printing tools in a digital environment.
During the workshop, introduction to the art of engraving, acquaintance with material’s behaviour such as ink & linoleum, as well as handling of the necessary tools such as cutters, will be presented & analysed.
A little bit of information about Engraving
Engraving had been associated with typography for centuries. The discovery of photography freed artists from illustration, giving them the opportunity to create autonomous engravings. In the 20th century Engraving evolved dramatically. Many artists such as Picasso and Warhol experimented with new techniques and materials such as linoleum, silkscreen printing, etc. In Greece the first to be introduced to Engraving in the 18th century were the Mount Athos monks. Since the middle of the 19th century Engraving has been taught at the School of Fine Arts by renowned engravers.
