Studio

Taller

Located in the heart of Barcelona since 1986, the studio has an exceptional location to reach from any point of the city and surroundings.

The creation of the studio was due to the need for Ignacio Aguirre to grow as a master engraver and share his knowledge with artists.

During this time, many artists have passed through the studio to carry out their graphic works.

In addition to being an artists' residence, for more than 10 years, the studio has been a place of learning for anyone who wants to learn or improve in the different techniques and procedures of intaglio engraving.
