The Joan Miró's printmaking workshops have conserved that desire to act as a springboard for experimentation in a wide diversity of artistic fields. Year after year, in this privileged setting, young artists and other more established ones carry out projects, exchange ideas and share their creative experiences.
The Fundació Miró Mallorca has enabled numerous artists to work in its engraving,lithography, silkscreen and ceramics workshops. In the last years it has opened its doors to new technologies and incorporated digital printing systems.
