Introduction to Stone Lithography Weekend Course June 13 & 14
INTRODUCTION TO STONE LITHOGRAPHY
During the weekend you will be introduced to the basics of stone lithography and you will have your own stone to work from. We will look at the work of artists Käthe Kollwitz, Paula Rego, Pablo Picasso, David Hockney and many others who have favoured stone lithography and mastered the effects within their image making. This method of printmaking allows for an enormous range of mark making and captures detail with exquisite subtleties. You will finish the weekend with a small edition of prints and proofs.
During this weekend course we will cover:
- Drawing materials and mark making
- Technical process of etching
- Paper handling
- Set up and use of the direct lithographic press
- Printing (assisting each other in pairs)
- Editioning of the prints
- Removing the image and grinding the stone
Suitable for those with no printmaking experience and those wishing to refresh their skills.
Maximum 4 participants.
