The workshop is approx. 233 m2, and is suitable for graphic work involving large formats. This is where you can work with photogravure techniques, photopolymerisation, lithography and woodcuts.
The premises are also suitable for educational workshop sessions, and may profitably be used by several graphic artists working on joint projects. Ideally two people will be working with photogravure and one with lithography – that way each artist will have a press at his or her disposal.
