is a group exhibition featuring representations of people that have helped and inspired so far. There is no particular theme and no preference in technique. Exhibitors include:
Karl Henrik Edlund
Location is Norra Flaka 20, 22610 Lemland, Åland, Finland
Call or e-mail if you feel unsure about directions or details.
First entirely independent workshop. Intaglio studio set up and Printmaster Tommi Hietanen from Tampere visiting professional. Aquatint, line etching and drypoint covered as well as decent printing technique.
Banners for Våga, a summer show organised by the Åland crafts association. The theme translates to something like Courage. The banners carry messages promoting small acts of courage that make life a little bit better. Transparent ink on rice paper makes the letters almost see through. Show is open until 31 August 2016 at Eckerö Post- och tullhus
Ålands craft association asked me to design and print posters by hand for their summer show. (More images to come)
In January I collaborated with Karl Henrik Edlund to create a week long workshop for photographers wanting to create a hand made book from their project. KH stood for logistics, Nico Baumgarten taught the binding and I printed covers together with each participant. Diverse and beautiful works, fantastic people and a great week!
I came across an irresistible press, good to have something that does less than 1000/h and doesn’t eat fingers…
For winter (Oct–Mar) I headed to Tampere and worked for Himmelblau.
Fantastic people and great work.
Every form of intaglio you can imagine.
Visiting is warmly recommended to anyone in the area!
