A wonderful and unique experience! It was so much fun and Ignasi was very helpful. I definitely recommend this printmaking experience if you are interested in art or in trying new things.

It was a very great experience with Ignasi. Almost the best thing we ever have done in Barcelona. Who is not good at painting can also feel inspired and enjoy the whole course. Definitely recommended. Ignasi was really friendly and patient. Although we are the only two people for the course on that day. We are really satisfied with the work, which we can bring it with us.

This is a family run business that supports many professional artists. The folks at the studio were very helpful, knowledgeable and genuinely passionate about their craft. Instead of buying souvenirs from trinket shops, support local craftspeople and artists.

Awesome experience if you're into art, printmaking, illustration, photography or anything between, also, if you just like to learn new things. Ignasi is super knowledgeable and makes you a part of the process from start to finish, answering all of your questions and being super nice! Also, great conversation overall. Would do it again for sure.

Fantastic experience. Ignasi was so generous with his time, very knowledgeable and great at communicating printmaking skills. Excellent studio in a great location. Definitely can recommend this. If you find yourself happy with your prints, you can always get a quote from them to make a small edition from your etching plate. Loved it! You should book it.

A truly amazing, artisanal experience for our group of 12 year olds and adults. Loved hearing about the legacy of this space and the artist, the thoughtful and in-depth instruction and the full hands-on experience of creating a print from start to finish. Cannot recommend this enough!!
