Intermediate Stone Lithography Evening Course Jan-Feb
STONE LITHOGRAPHY (INTERMEDIATE)
Over the 6 weeks you will be refreshed on the basics of stone lithography and you will have the opportunity to develop your understanding, taking your printmaking skills to a higher level working with multiple stones. This method of printmaking allows for an enormous range of mark making and captures detail with exquisite subtleties. You will finish the course with an edition of two-coloured prints or two editions of single layered prints, and proofs.
During this evening course we will cover/refresh:
- Drawing materials and methods of mark making
- Technical process of etching
- Various papers and paper handling
- Registration of multiple layers
- Ink mixing and overlaying colours
- Set up and use of the direct lithographic press
- Printing (independently)
- Removing the image and grinding the stone
Suitable for those with some printmaking experience and those wishing to refresh their skills. If you have not completed the introduction to stone lithography weekend course or have no experience of stone lithography a prior meeting with Scarlett will be required before the course starts. This meeting is a chance to talk through the basics and plan your imagery over a cup of tea.
