2018 - Guanajuato, Mexico

Encaustic Collagraph Printmaking in Guanajuato! 

Make the picturesque Spanish Colonial hill town of Guanajuato your destination for creating and exploring next Winter! Guanajuato was founded in 1559 due to the region's rich silver and gold deposits. Opulent colonial buildings, stunning tree-filled plazas and brightly colored houses are crammed onto the steep slopes of a ravine. Excellent museums, handsome theaters and a fine marketplace punctuate the cobblestone streets. The city's 'main' roads twist around the hillsides and plunge into tunnels, formerly rivers.


Piramidal Grafica
The workshop takes place at Piramidal Grafica. With two large presses and ample workspace for 12 participants, this professional printmaking facility is well suited to serve all the creative needs of workshop attendees. Five days have been allotted with a day off built into the program for you to explore the City or take a day trip to nearby San Miguel de Allende at an extra cost.
