About the Workshop
Tryk2 provides good facilities for many different relief and intaglio printmaking techniques. The workshop is primarily set up to support water-based and non-toxic printing techniques, but oil-based inks can be used.
There are constant efforts to improve and expand the workshop, and at the time of writing, the following fine art printtechniques are supported: dry point, etching, aquatint, soft ground, woodcut, linocut, collography, monotypes, collageprints, xero-litografi, chine collé and of course, drawing.
