From February to June this year, MGLC held a 50-hour Beginners and a 50-hour Advanced Course in printmaking techniques. The Beginners course introduced participants to screenprinting, woodcut, linocut (in combination with collage) and collagraphy. The Advanced Course imparted knowledge of etching and reservage, lithography, aquatint and drypoint.
We will have the opportunity to view a selection of work by the course participants in a relaxed atmosphere and talk about our experiences and practices.
The Beginners Course was conducted by Jakob Puh, art teacher and head of the MGLC Print Studio, Nina Koželj, printmaker, sculptor and art teacher, Silvester Plotajs Sicoe, academy-trained painter and printmaker, and Sonja Vulpes, visual artist and printmaker. The Advanced Course was led by printmakers and art teachers Monika Plemen and Alja Košar. Course coordination: Lili Šturm, Museum Adviser.
The event is co-financed by the European Union.
