Engraving workshop in Chamonix
Spirit of the workshops of the engraving workshop
If you wish to practice engraving to create art pieces, prints, monotypes, our workshop is open to you. Engraving is not a "creative hobby", it is practiced with strength and passion. It requires availability and rigor. It is a demanding art. Picasso said to his printers Aldo and Piero Crommelynck: "Let's get down to business".
Engraving workshops, etching, wood, linoleum.
The workshop is equipped with an ATC 80 Louis-Richebé press, printing format 80 x 120 cm, plate of 80 x 160 cm for intaglio, lino plates (it is an excellent press), and a proofing press for woodcuts and monotypes, printing format 40 x 50 cm (marble 50 x 60 cm, paper height: 23.56 mm).
The techniques in the program of the engraving courses are varied: drypoint, etching, aquatint, sugar etching, soft varnish, texture printing, engraving on wood and linoleum...
