Postcards from Venice

Amy West Design Studio


"Printing from Glass- Postcards" from Venice is a series of three hands-on workshops, three hours each. International artists Róisín de Buitléar and Amy West demonstrate how to draw, incise and print a glass negative onto paper postcards. Participants will sketch on glass along Murano canal sides, use basic glass engraving skills and learn glass plate printing. These unique postcards can be mailed from Murano to destinations around the world! Addressing the fragility of modern correspondence, these activities open discussions on virtual and physical communication. Róisín de Buitléar and Amy West share the joy of maintaining physical correspondence through hand-engraved and hand printed materials. Workshops demonstrate how making and sending postcards from Venice, captures time and place more intensely and enduringly, than contemporary forms of digital communication.
