Garabatos Atelier

is a Queer Feminist Collective and Art Studio in Bremen.

We are currently 5 queer people with different backgrounds and areas of focus, but the common desire to build and share a safer space for our artistic work. Since October 2022 we have finally found our creative ‘home’ in the Bohnenstraße in Bremen Viertel.

We work partly on common projects, but also independently on our own artistic production, with a wide variety of different techniques and materials that allow us to get inspired by one another. From traditional printmaking to digital illustration, sculpture, photography, large-scale painting or object art.

What unite us? We are queer, weird, emotional, curious, sometimes scientific-intellectual or blunt to the point: just like our art!

Workshops anyone..?

Mini-Print Workshop Series

Through the Mini Print Workshop Series we want to introduce the vast world of Printmaking to people of all ages. Every Workshop will showcase different printing techniques at an entry level and provide a hands-on experience to the participants.

Printmaking is an artistic process based on the principle of transferring images from a matrix or plate onto another surface, like paper or fabric. With a selection of traditional, contemporary or experimental materials and techniques, while focusing on small formats, this workshop series aims to provide a basic understanding to the concept of printing and reproduction itself, as well to explore it’s multiple possibilities that can be applied when creating unique and personalised designs, art pieces, posters, cards and more.

This Workshop Series is sponsored by the Senator for Culture Bremen.

#Drypoint etching

Drypoint etching is an intaglio printmaking process. Unlike traditional etching, drypoint etching does not use acid. Instead, the plate is scratched directly with a sharp tool, creating fine lines and textures. These lines create a burr that holds ink, meaning that the print reveals the drawing. Intaglio printmaking is the opposite of relief printmaking as it is the positive marks that are printed rather than the areas that are left behind.

After the plate is engraved, it is inked and then printed on paper or another printing medium. During the workshop, participants will be introduced to the basics of drypoint etching and will be able to try out different materials such as Tetrapak, Rhenalon and acrylic plates.

Each Workshop is intended to print a small Edition of 5-10 copies. All materials needed will be provided.

The workshop will be conducted in a small-scale setting, with a maximum of 10 participants and it is open for all 14 or older.

It will take place on Saturday the 18.11. // 14:00 – 18:00 hrs.
