In one of my previous posts I've mentioned Drukdrukdruk graphic arts festival organised by KUNSTWERKT during the weekend of 6 & 7th of May. During this weekend more than 50 printmaking artists/studio's, museums and art schools in Flanders and Brussels will be reflecting the full spectrum of graphic techniques including screen printing, lino, litho, etching, monotype, letterpress printing and will be offering an activity, such as demonstration, guided tour, workshop, etc.
I'm so looking forward to it! Visiting various studio's, speaking with like-minded people, learning new techniques, what can be better than that :) Btw, don't forget to visit the MIAT museum, witness the demonstrations of the printing presses, meet the printmakers and get your free letterpress printed poster.
Take a look on the interactive map to find out more info about the activities in your province or near your hometown.
Check out the 5 video portraits of artists practicing different aspects of graphic arts, made by creative people behind the KUNSTWERKT (video's are Dutch-spoken).
