What you'll do

Come in and dive into the black art! I open my living room studio for you and show you all the secrets of gravure printing. Drypoint and etching, sugar ink, and aquatint - techniques from an old world. Then it gets serious: you'll create your own work to print with muscle power on the historic plank horn printing press. The first step is the creation of the printing plate. For beginners in etching, I have prepared soft materials. With an etching needle you carve your motive. Afterwards I show you the color application and the correct wiping technique. Then the etching press comes to the fore. Under high pressure your printing block is embossed into the damp laid paper. Et voilà - the first print! Your memory of a wonderful day in Stuttgart remains on noble Hahnemühle copper printing cardboard.

Katja

Hello, my name is Katja Bellenbaum. I am an artist and graphic designer. Already during my studies I was fascinated by different printing techniques. For years I have been leading courses and workshops for children, teenagers and adults in addition to my exhibition activities. Printing is a bit like magic. There is a lot of craftsmanship and well-kept secrets in it. I am always on the hunt for new experimental methods. I have a restored Plankenhorn etching press right in my living room. In a small space, I can fulfil every printing dream.

Where you'll be

I invite you to my home. My living room studio is small and extraordinary. Gladly I show you everything. Here I live and work. Should it be cold, my stove will warm you. When the sun is shining, we can take a break on a terrace covered with wine. You are cordially invited to a small snack, cold and warm drinks.
