Art Houz Presents Printmaking Workshop


Art Houz presents a Printmaking Workshop in which 10 artists from different parts of the country will participate. The artists will work in the two most olden forms of printmaking – Woodcut & Etching.

The duration of the workshop will be 2 weeks, from 21 May – 4 June 2016.

The workshop will be open to public from Monday-Saturday, 10:30am – 06:30pm. Visitors will be encouraged to interact with the artist and learn the process.

The workshop will be followed by an exhibition of the art works produced during the workshop. The exhibition will commence on 11 June 2016.

 About the Workshop

The printmaking workshop by Art Houz will entail the bringing together of the varied pivotal pedagogies of Indian printmaking. Artists from different art schools like Santiniketan, Baroda, Kheragarh, Hyderabad, Chennai and Bangalore will be part of the atelier. The amalgamation and interaction of different schools of thought, techniques and discourses would engender a highly critical space of learning and creation. Their shared ideas and discussions would surely manifest in the creation of some spectacular works of art.

The artists will be working in the two most olden forms of printmaking as part of the workshop – Woodcut and Etching. These two techniques were immensely popular from the early fifteenth century and have extremely different visual aesthetics.

While both the techniques involve the scrapping away layers form the surface, the resultant prints are due to different processes. Woodcut is a relief process where the embossed surface of the wood block catches the ink and transfers it onto the paper; whereas in Etching the etched lines on the metal plate retain the ink and when passed through a press transfers the arrested ink onto the paper. Woodcut restrains the artist from achieving fine delicate lines whereas Etching enables intricate rendering in the work.

The prolonged history and opposing visual aesthetics led us to choose these two printmaking techniques. The artists in a span of two weeks will explore these practices to produce 10 editions each of their works.
