What you'll do

Gather at the meeting point, in the parking lot of the Revolution’s Square. It is perfect place to meet, as it is 5 minutes walking from our house. Welcome coffee. Once in the house, we go to the dining room and share a welcome coffee with the rest of the family members, per Cuban tradition when we have guests at home. Talk with the family. After an introduction of the González-Sánchez family, we show the guests the rest of our house as we return to the living room. Once there, we can share with the guests a bit of our family history and experiences, like how we arrived at the engraving and how it became our way of life. To the workshop. Once the talk is over, we can move on to the workshop, in the next room. There we can share more about engraving and the technique that together we are going to do: the monotype. Monotype is a very experimental technique, which they will learn from our hands yet do with their own. All the guests in this experience will be able to print their own creations and take them with them at the end. Farewell. After finishing the work in the workshop, we can have another moment to exchange opinions and experiences while we share a drink.
