Around ‘The south of Picasso’
Calcographic engraving course
On the occasion of the 15th Anniversary
Course for adults 15 and 16 Nov. 2018
Chalcography or intaglio printing or stamping is a printing technique in which the images are the result of the stamping, by means of a press or press, of a sheet or metal sheet in which incisions have been made to contain the ink that is will fix the paper. The technique originally designated only engravings made in copper, and by extension began to be used for engravings on all metals. The rooms of the temporary exhibition The south of Picasso. Andalusian references , in which works by Picasso or Goya will be seen, will be the starting point of this course in which different techniques of intaglio engraving will be explored.
Intended for adult audiences, no previous artistic knowledge is required and lasts for two sessions. In them, the visit to the rooms of the temporary exhibition will alternate with the practical work in the workshop. In each session a different chalcographic technique will be addressed, so the first day will apply the dry point, a direct technique, the plate is attacked directly with punches, burnishers, etc … In the second day, an indirect technique will be studied, the etching, where the plate is immersed in an acid that acts as a mordant of the metal.
The price (€ 50) includes visits to the Museum and all materials. Limited places.
James Joyce by Roger Cummiskey. When we think of Ireland, we think of a country that has a rich cultural heritage. A place which seems to be bursting at the seams with poets, novelists and playwrights, who all seem to have been gifted with an incredible innate sense of storytelling and drama. If you were to check the list of Nobel Prize winners since it’s inception, you’d find that Ireland ranks eighth in terms of how many it has produced over the years. Just what is it that makes the Irish so good at writing and the creative process? The first Irish foray into literature Culturally speaking, Ireland lays claim to the fact that it has one of the oldest forms of vernacular literature in the world, with only Greek or Latin able to match it. The Irish peoples were literate from the very earliest centuries, utilising a simple writing system called “Ogham” which was a way of communicating via inscriptions on little stone tablets. One of the very first proper written Irish wor

Selected Poems from James Joyce and Me. Happy 139th Birthday Mr Joyce. 2/2/21. 2nd. February 2021 If Joyce were still alive he would be 139 years old today. Born 1882 died 13/01/1941. I would like to feature a poem written by Joyce entitled " Gas from a Burner ". 14 September 1912: Joyce started writing the poem ‘ Gas from a Burner ’ in the railway station waiting room in Flushing (Vlissingen) in the Netherlands on his way from Dublin to Trieste, and he completed it between there and Salzburg. He had it printed in Trieste and sent copies to Dublin. The poem was a broadside against his Dublin Publisher George Roberts of the firm Maunsel and Company who had turned him down over a ten year period. James Joyce composed ‘ Gas from a Burner ’ in response to learning that the printed sheets of his short story collection Dubliners had been destroyed by the printer John Falconer. The collection had already been rejected for publication on several occasions. After the inc
