TATTISTAMPA will be Part of the 2024 Hand-Made Printing Day (Mar. 17, 2024)

TATTISTAMPA, the print shop installed by Wolfgang Scheibe in Tatti, Southern Tuscany, in 2007, will be part also this year of the Hand-Made Printing Day.
This event was launched in 2018, when UNESCO in Germany recorded this discipline in the list of intangible cultural heritage.

The celebration is followed mostly in German-speaking countries, but it is not forbidden to participate from other countries. So Wolfgang has considered wearing the hat of “honorary consul” for the Day in Southern Tuscany. You may also check the page https://www.tag-der-druckkunst.de/veranstaltungen/liste to see a map of the various locations participating in Europe.

The official commemoration is on March 15, but in order to encourage participation, the appointment in the Metalliferous hills is set for Sunday, March 17, from 11AM at the Zucchini farm. This is 1.5 km outside of Tatti, on the road going from the village to Roccatederighi.

Here you may see from a closer distance how the Ape car prints are born, as well as T-shirts and other works, all rigorously created with characters in wood or iron, and graphic insets engraved by hand.

The visit to the workshop is free, but given the limited space available you should please reserve via e-mail at tattistampa@tiscali.it or via whatsapp on +393394465812.

Rumour has it that some members of the Jug Band Colline Metallifere may be on the premises (all of the JBCM graphics are provided by Wolfgang, who also happens to be the one-string bass player in the band).
