The print workshop with a view

the print workshop KK-trykk, Åse came as a resident artist and Rita from Bergen has her summerhouse nearby.
Where did it all start?
Printmaking is well known as great tradition of particular handicraft with focus on skills, materials, spesialized tools, special chemicals, heavy machinery and presses - and proudness of knowing all this.
Printmaking in our times is also ias in all contemporary art very much turning into environmental and sustainable thinking. Less poison, less damaging of nature. More experimenting - but still knowing how to deal with the material joys and toys.
