Hosted in English, Italian

What you'll do

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.

This was a wonderful and relaxed way of finding out more about the complexities and nuances of etchings and prints. Would absolutely recommend it for anyone interested in printmaking, and for anyone who loves Venice.
