Le lieu

The experience will take place in a private printmaking studio, which is a hidden atelier in the busy neighbourhood of Kalighat. The studio belongs to my teacher who is a senior printmaker, and is a one-of-a-kind printmaking studio in the city, with a lovely new etching press, and facilities for screen-printing as well. He will be around during the workshop as well, sharing his experienced inputs with the group!
