What you'll do

This hands-on experience gives you a chance to bring one of your own photographs to life as a glass or wood print. You make the print yourself and can choose from different printing options and finishing effects.

We will meet at my studio in Kreuzberg (Glastrix). Over a welcome drink, I will introduce you to the concept of printing on glass or wood and give you an overview of the process. Following this, we prepare the surfaces for printing. We will have a look at your images and edit if necessary.

We then UV print your image on the glass. The standard included glass is 40x40 or 30x45 cm. You can choose a different size, or print multiples (costs extra). The print is directly on the glass, there is no foil or sticker. This means you can also leave areas transparent, ie borders if you wish. Mountings are affixed and the print is wrapped up protectively.

Images that work well for glass are black and white photography, high contrast color images, digital creations, and vacation photos. Wood is great for sepia, nature scenes, paintings, and portraits. Images should be high resolution.

You walk away with a fabulous object you made yourself, an excellent gift or souvenir.
Other things to note
I may have my Vizsla ( a very nice dog) on site with me. She gets excited with guests and likes to bark, but it is just excitement at new playmates.

Pude imprimir una foto de mi viaje en cristal, que la pondré en mi casa. Eric es una persona increible. Se nota que le gusta su trabajo y es una persona cercana y abierta, hace que las cosas sean fáciles. La próxima vez que vuelta a Berlín volveré a su estudio con más ideas para imprimir.

I booked this experience for my boyfriend as a surprise birthday gift, and Eric was amazing - he opened up a special workshop time especially to accommodate the request, and was amazing and communicating and helping me plan the surprise throughout. My boyfriend mentioned that Eric was a really knowledgeable host and really engaging - would definitely do it again and it was a highlight of his birthday. Thanks for the amazing experience Eric!

Eric was very informative and had a lot of personal experience on digital printing and material science to share throughout. It was awesome to understand what elements are important when printing on glass, and was great to have a large color glass print to take home!
