There are still a few places left!
Create your own artwork in letterpress with color and new media.
Design and print your own book illustration with a lino print and relief printing/laser cut plate in the AGA LAB studio.
A workshop to roll up your sleeves and get your hands dirty; you start by cutting your image or design in a lino plate. The teacher at AGA LAB explains the possibilities of relief printing and then shows the ingredients that you can use to compile your own image. First the rolling and pressing of the plate, then the application of color and combining your image with a prepared laser-cut plate, with images from the collections of the Allard Pierson. AGA LAB would like to let you experience the fun of making. The combination of manual work and digitally prepared image will surprise you warmly.
The teacher speaks English.
