Pure Print



20 – 22 April

Jurgis Bernatonis and Matas Duda: Cvbankas – Creative Thinking

We pick our name of the workshop accidentally by pushing c letter in Google search. This is what our workshop is all about. It is misguiding, misdirecting, misunderstanding. By the name of our workshop we want to suggest for participants to make artworks, which could be hard or impossible to understand for others. In our workshop we would like to introduce traditional printmaking techniques combined with bookbinding techniques. We will introduce the process how to make your printmaking art works and bind them into the book. In this workshop we would like to show different ways of using printmaking as medium. We want to provoke creative thinking.

Duration: 3 days (3 h per day) from 14h to 17h
