The printing workshop is particularly well-equipped for print work, and features three intaglio presses:
- an 80 x 140 cm Richebé intaglio press;
- a 65 x 120 cm Gary-Thibault intaglio press;
- a 60 x 120 cm Breisch intaglio press.
All these presses can be used for intaglio, direct intaglio, wood and linoleum engraving works, as well as making offset and pad printing plates.
The workshop has a Tiflex exposure unit and a vacuum frame for exposing offset plates or screen-printing frames.
Other equipment includes an extractor hood to evacuate vapours and protect users during the acid etching process and a grain cabinet for making aquatints for large format plates. Prints are dried on a shelf dryer. Students have permanent access to six inking stations, inking rollers and inks. All basic equipment is available free of charge.
Open access for TALM staff and students only. Please note that the etching workshop can only be used by students who have taken specific training.
