January 2022 witnesses the comeback of the highly successful printmaking workshop “Poetics” led by Maro Michalakakou. The workshop looks back on events of the Culture Center that focus on iconic authors of Modern Greek poetry (“Reflections on an ancient line of verse” on Nikos Gatsos; “Poetical Works” by J. Psychopedis inspired by Odysseus Elytis). We learn about their life and work and draw inspiration to create our own artwork. In this workshop we investigate the way in which poetry and poets can be transubstantiated into visual image.
We become acquainted with the history, aesthetics and basic techniques of printmaking. In each session we experiment with a different technique as well as with the principles of upcycling, giving recyclable materials a second life, and create our own “poetic image.”
Design - implementation: Maro Michalakakou, visual artist
Workshop support: Electra Stampoulou, visual artist
