Pier will come to pick you up at the metro station while I will be waiting home preparing a welcome aperitivo. Once arrived at our cozy tipical dutch suburb apartment, we will settle down in the living room and the experience will start. During the first hour Pier will introduce you to this ancient art and will teach you how to choose your subject, make your sketch and engrave your plate. During the second hour, you will be taught how to print: you will move to his in-home atelier! You will then ink your plate and make it ready to be printed under a real etching press and take your work home!
Pier and I left Italy three years ago to follow our dreams in this amazingly inspiring city. Pier is a professional engraver and etcher who will guide you through a real engraving home-and-hand made experience. In two hours (or more, you know Italians) you will be taught how to engrave and, with plenty of ... colours and a real supercool etching press, you will print your own product and take your masterpiece with you! Are you wondering what will my contribution be? Well, delicious finger-food, glasses of wine and assisting you guys will be my mission!
Italian finger food: please feel free to let us know wheather you have diet preferences or restictions.
A glass of red/white wine or hot tea
All tools and materials included!
We live in a vribrant neighborhood in Amsterdam South-East! You can come by car (free spots right in front of our building) or by metro (19 minutes from Central Station).
There will be our adorable cat in the flat!
