Celia found working at Il Bisonte fantastic. She made a print based on some paintings that she made at the same time during her Villa Lena residency, on the Italian volcano Stromboli. She found printmaking quite difficult in some ways as it was a process so opposite in approach to how she normally works. However Celia wants to make more in the future, as it was definitely a memorable and worthwhile experience.

-----

Il Bisonte is a print-workshop for graphic arts founded in Florence in 1959 by Maria Luigia Guaita.
Many artists – both Italian and non – accepted the invitation to work at Il Bisonte. including members of the Futurist movement -
Gino Severini, Carlo Carrà, Alberto Magnelli, and such international stars as Pablo Picasso, Jacques Lipchitz, Helen Chadwick, Alexander Calder and Henry Moore.
In 1983 Il Bisonte became a non-profit Cultural Centre and opened an international school, with the focus to preserve the teaching and printing of the traditional engraving techniques.
