|The Small Print Shop is intended for children to help them discover how much fun and potential to express themselves there is in printing. The workshop will take us to the past to study analogue printing techniques and let the kids work with their hands to unleash their creativity. They will be shown printing methods like monotype and linocut, and use improvisation and experimentation to create their own individual pieces and a group work.
The workshop is inclusive for all vocations, and open freely to children with developmental difficulties, who will have ensured professional assistance from educational rehabilitators, members of the workshop team. We will be using water-soluble paint, and ask the parents to provide their kids with clothes that they can mess up while working.
