Art Print Residence

General information

Brief description of organisation

As owner/operators of Murtra Edicions, we have worked with and printed for artists since (1991) creating plates and printing editions and special collections. We have taught courses locally and have been invited to teach in Europe and in northern Canada.

Brief description of residency program

We offer a professional workshop specializing in intaglio printmaking.

We are inviting printmakers and visual artists (also artists of another disciplines like writers and poets) to our residency. We provide you with personal assistance and workshop space you need to research and create your work. Our rural setting provides a tranquil space for you to live and work. You have the freedom to create your own work or participate in our selection of courses and workshops.

Our living space, the residency and our studio is housed on three separate floors of our lovely home. We are surrounded by a small garden, where we host several special but shy turtle guests.
