About the workshop

Monstrorum, is an Imaginary Laboratory about monsters, animals and creatures that live with us and that sometimes appear in unusual places. So we are going to create a book with the different strange species that are born from the engraving in the matrix, a set of engravings that will form a small artist's book - The Monstrorum. The workshop aims to showcase the linoleum engraving technique and its expressive potential. Without the use of toxic products, participants will have the opportunity to create a matrix and explore the printing methods that this technique allows us to do. It intends to work the existence of the abstract, to stimulate the flexibility of thought giving new tools to the children to create with the greatest possible freedom and to express themselves through interaction with others. Finding what unites them in diversity.
