Presentation / workshop with collaborative activity and practical demonstration of a research project about the creative possibilities of the stamping processes through the concepts of sequentiality, vacuum, texture, propagation, rhythm and composition.

DATE: July 20, 2019

HOURS: from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

DURATION: 2 hours

ASSISTANT NUMBER: minimum 5 maximum 20

PLACE: La Factoría de Papel c/ Buenavista 8 28012 Madrid


The objective of this workshop is to make known the generative possibilities of the stamping process from a certain number of matrixes. In this sense, the interest is in using the stamping to create sequential images that are propagated on a support:

  1. Theoretical explanation about a project carried out by Raquel Hernández Izquierdo called “Los Ciclos del Agua“, in which a series of prints with 120 wooden matrixes have been developed. The result of the investigation has been a sequence of images that follow the matrix as a basic pattern through which variations have been created around the concepts of emptiness, texture, propagation, rhythm and composition.
  2. Collaborative activity in which a series of prints will be made based on the concepts analyzed in the theoretical explanation.
  3. Conclusions about the activity carried out and question time.
