Event description
Calling all printmakers, creatives and creatively-curious people...

About this Event

Following the success of our first event, Utrecht Print Exchange is back with its next meet up, EXCHANGE #2: Process, on 14 January 2020.

Come along – alone or with print-loving pal – meet other printmakers and creatives, and get inspired.

The event takes place at Utrecht's Rabarber on Tuesday 14 January. Doors open at 19:00 and we'll kick off at 19:30.

Tickets cost €7, which includes a free drink.

Cosy Rabarber is a great little cafe in the middle of town, just a short walk from Utrecht Central station.

PROCESS

There are certain unavoidable steps in printmaking. Preparation, applying some form of pressure, creating some kind of impression and, of course, cleaning up.

But there are many more steps that an artist or designer can take that make their work, and how they arrive at the (un)finished piece, creatively different and unique.

How important are these additional steps?

Is it better to work with a set idea of what you want your finished piece to look like?

How can experimenting with idea generation, exploring new methods and playing with colours help your work to evolve?

Along with our speakers, we'll be discussing these questions, and much more, at EXCHANGE #2.

Meet the speakers
