The meeting proposes a direct involvement of the whole family in the experience of engraving.
Everyone will be able to have an approach to the technique in a simple way. Each participant will be able to engrave their own design on the zinc plate (by scratching the protective paint). The mordant used is not toxic.
The whole family will obtain a print of their own engraved design, using the “Bendini” chalcographic press.

The total cost is € 250, it includes all materials.
