Printmaking in Italy

I had the opportunity to take a print making class taught by Rick Woodbury, an American born artist who has established a small studio in Castiglioin Fiorentino. Rick gives demonstrations on a variety of print making techniques including carving, dry-point, acid etching, mono-type, and book-binding. I was unfamiliar with how many of these techniques actually worked and was excited to be able to learn a few of them.
These are some images from his studio:

Rick also creates these incredible wire frame sculptures:
