- Target groupsAdults, Teenagers
- RegistrationFree of charge | No registration necessary | Join in at any time
In the Factory we offer you the possibility to experiment with different artistic techniques. In this workshop, Christopher Gebray will introduce you to drypoint etching. This technique has offered the possibility of reproducing artistic works and drawings since the end of the 15th century. With a so-called drypoint you scratch a motif into a zinc or copper plate. Not only is each etching an individual work of art, but so is each print. In this workshop, you can explore the design options available to you.
Artist Christopher Gebray uses his art to show how he sees the world. All types of painting and drawing are worked out to the last detail. In the area of intaglio and relief printing, he adopts centuries-old techniques and translates them into the present.
ABOUT THE SILVER FACTORY

Inspired by Andy Warhol’s famous studio, the Silver Factory, various different techniques and themes entice us to take part in varied artistic endeavors across all media. Whether drawing, painting, using different printing techniques or dancing, whether analog, digital or hybrid, come by and be transported into the world of colors and shapes in a relaxed atmosphere.
