Original Etchings is where etchings from Francesco Antonietti can be found. The studio behind Original Etchings is atelier28. www.atelier28.net

Atelier28 began in 2003 in a small shop in the centre of the rural Dutch harbour town, Tholen, with artists Francesco Antonietti and Andrea Cook. From the beginning we've had three core interests: making and creating, giving art classes and making artwork in commission. Over the years a small community of people have grown around our art centre in the heart of this small town where our main aim is to share in creativity. Our studio and workshop is shared with all those who wish to learn how to paint or make etchings. And on Saturdays we open the studio to all those who participate in our classes during the week to continue their work, along with a cup of tea or coffee and homemade cake. The best part is watching people from 8 to 80 painting, learning and discovering along side each other.

In the summer months we visit art markets with our etching press and demonstrate how etchings are made. We even can be found dressed up in the local traditional costume, wearing wooden clogs!

When we're not working in our studio we love to cycle along the Dutch coast amongst the dunes and enjoy the sea views, all year round, drawing on the special light and atmosphere for inspiration.
