Art tour Bilbao

Etching is method of making prints from a metal plate, into which the design has been incised by acid. The metal surface is first coated with an acid-resistant substance, called the etching ground, through which the design is drawn with a sharp tool. 

Practiced in Europe since the Middle Ages, etching was a technique used by goldsmiths and other metal workers to decorate items from jewelry, cups and plates to guns and armor. Instead of looking at art in the museum, take some time to learn about the history and importance of etching with a local artist during your visit to Bilbao. The visit includes a hands-on demonstration and a chance to create your own souvenir.

For lunch visit a privately owned art gallery to meet two charming local artists for a tour of their private gallery home and enjoy a freshly prepared lunch.

The Bilbao Art experience is specially designed for small groups looking for something unique when visiting Bilbao.
