A little more than a week ago we came back to the Collado Royo farmhouse to held the third Calotipo’s rural outing, it’s just, we were waiting for the good weather, to be able to get away to this village where you live and eat so, so well …! For this occasion we planned a lettering workshop, carving linoleum and manual and printing press, and we invited a full-blooded Plómez to take part in it: Mr. Juanjo Lopez came to teach us all his art and good work with the fountain pens, the walnut stain, italics, carolina, line and angle… to cut a long story short, he gave a teaching workshop on lettering we would have already wanted to last 3 or 4 days instead of 1.
At the end of the day, all the participants had developed a typographic composition they had to carve on linoleum and print on different basis on Sunday, and the results you can see on the photos and the video accompanying the post once again, were much too interesting. You can see that, in short, we weren’t hungry at all … HA!
Thanks Robert and Pilar for food, Juanjo for coming and for the best Plómez gift we´ll show soon and to all the participants because you liven us up and we learn a lot with you. We’ve already started to think about our next getaway. Any suggestions?
