Printing facility and Metal workshop

Skaftfell residency artists can have access to a printing facility located in the local Technical Museum. The facility consist partly of Dieter Roth´s printmaking presses and tools, in addition there is a letterpress and basic tools for bookbinding. Working press equipment includes:

RELIEF PRINTING
The printmaking process consists of cutting or etching a printing surface in such a way that all the remains of the original surface is then the design to be printed. Print area width: 48cm maximum

INTAGLIO COPPER PRINT PRESS
A technique in which the image is incised into a surface and the incised line or sunken area holds the ink – the direct opposite to relief printing. Print area width: 30cm maximum

LITHOGRAPHY PRESS:
This is a method of printing based on the principle that oil and water do not mix. Printing is done from a stone using oil based inks. Print area: 35 x 45cm

In the museum is also a metal workshop for forging with basic tools (minus gas welding) and a forge in original settings from 1907.
