INKTOPUS, run by Luc Van Quickenborne, his sons and a few volunteers, is a public, non-toxic printing workspace, where students, artists, and actually anyone, can learn and practice the art of printmaking. Last Sunday, after being at the KERK (Gent) for about a year they've moved to a little bit smaller, but a quite cozy new location and (re)opened their doors to the public.
Currently, INKTOPUS is offering the following workshops: screenprinting (textile, paper), etching, drypoint, photopolymer plate making, monoprint, woodcut and linocut.
Do you wish to work on a project of your own? For a small fee you can use the facilities during the opening hours (with technical assistance provided). If you want to order screen printed t-shirts, tote bags, posters, limited edition art prints etc, feel free to contact them to discuss your needs.
Occasionally INKTOPUS hosts a few specific workshops, as for instance, cartonnage, paper making etc. These workshops are divided into 2 groups, beginners and advanced. From time to time, in addition to the workshops, they organise other events such as lectures and exhibitions.
