Cook up your very own etching print in this activation designed by artist Artek Halpern-Laurence of Huge Mumma Spice Merchant.

Print Kitchen is presented in the Great Hall for the duration of the Stallholder Fair. Playing with the connection between printmaking and food-making, participants will enter the studio-come-trattoria to create their own etching, watch it be ‘cooked’ by a team of chefs operating the giant spinning wheel of the onsite etching press; and with the ding of a bell, collect their very own print to take home and enjoy. 


Artek Halpern-Laurence

Artek Halpern-Laurence is an emerging artist who established Warrandyte print studio Huge Mumma Spice Merchant in 2016. His printmaking practice spans various techniques, including drypoint, stone lithography, screenprinting and modifying office laser printers, and often incorporates reclaimed and repurposed materials.
