Since 2012 Puente develops as a workshop space dedicated to printmaking linked to less toxic practices. There is a commitment since then to develop the traditional and alternative techniques of engraving in a more environmentally friendly way and with ourselves by avoiding the use of harmful products: Lithographic processes on aluminum or polyester plates, embossing, embossing techniques In hollow using mordiente of Bordeaux (mordiente saline) to replace the nitric acid are some of the processes that this workshop diffuses and develops. From 2016 Puente assumes the task of being a printer's workshop, carrying forward editions of original prints for craft books or as support in the stages of editing particular graphic works. Thus this space is proposed as a place of learning, production and research in contemporary engraving, assuming the commitment to be a communicator and a link in the universe of printmaking in Argentina.
