Current Opening hours
The registration for the use of the workshop is made by e-mail to the workshop supervisor. Students who are entitled to work alone are permitted to do so under the conditions stated below after prior registration. Opening hours: Mon-Fri, 10.00-17.00
Students can work in the rooms of the workshop as follows:
- Room 356: A maximum of one person can work in the UV printing area in addition to the workshop supervisor or student assistant.
- Room 357: Here a maximum of 2 persons can work simultaneously in addition to the workshop manager, provided they work on different projects and can maintain the safety distances. There should always be at least two windows at an angle.
- Room 358: A maximum of one person can work in the room for gravure printing.
- Room 359: Only one person can work in the etching room.
In the printing techniques workshop, skills in diverse printing processes will be taught, enabling HFBK students to apply these appropriately to their own artistic work. Hybrid printing forms will be investigated, as well as analogue techniques such as relief printing (e. g. wood and lino block printing), incised printing (e. g. etching, gravure printing), flat screen printing (e. g. lithography, and offset printing) and digital printing techniques and methods of creating images, for instance with the mouse, graphic tablet, camera, scanner and computer programmes. Different printing techniques will be combined, for instance, or images produced by analogue techniques will be digitalised in order to be re-created in analogue form after being digitally processed. In the more advanced experimental project work, students will realise their individual artistic intentions.
