About the event
This well established and traditional printmaking process has been introduced to the workshop since1999. This specialist Lithography printing weekend has been put together to introduce this most long standing and one of most beautiful of all the printing procedures that the studio has to offer. Used most commonly by visiting artists and in the edition section of the studio this two-day course is designed to cover the main areas of this stone lithography. During the two days you will cover both the technical and creative part of making reproductive images onto stones and proof printing them onto handmade specialist paper. You draw then print.
This introductory workshop is designed for you to learn the basis of this traditional printing process. This workshop is open to all and offers an opportunity to work toward a number of possible outcomes. The workshop runs from 10 am to 4 pm, Saturday and Sunday.
All basic materials such as use of a stone each for weekend along with proofing. Ink & paper will be provided. Specialist Lithography paper and a range of coloured inks are available to purchase at the studio.
