I have a genuine love for intaglio, and I have been fortunate to visit different printmaking studios and go to workshops. I always find it incredible inspiring, and I'm amazed every time when I get to know new artists and technicians with a world of knowledge and specializm in what they are doing. Absolutely fantastic!

I need a page on my blog to tell you about all these wonderful places I have been to. Some use traditional intaglio, some use non-toxic intaglio.

The last place I went was Estudi de Gravat Ignasi Aguirre Ruiz in Barcelona, Spain.
A fantastic printmaking studio with the best atmosphere and work ethics. They know they trade and are truly experts in intaglio.

I only had a few days together with a group of lovely ladies, but I will definitely return.
We worked with traditional etching, and got a good feel of the place.
