Kitchen Lithography Workshop: Drawing with Chocolate January 9th
KITCHEN LITHOGRAPHY: DRAWING WITH CHOCOLATE
Kitchen lithography is a good introduction to lithography as it works with the same principle that oil and water do not mix, but within this workshop the process relies on ingredients you would find in your kitchen. We will draw with chocolate and soap and etch with lemon juice or coke.
Invented by Émilee Aizier as a non-toxic alternative to traditional lithography, Kitchen Lithography gives immediate results and achieves an impressive range of marks and subtlety that you can reproduce at home.
During this Saturday workshop we will cover:
- Creating a kitchen litho plate
- Drawing materials and mark making
- Etching technical process
- Paper handling
- Set up and use of the press
Suitable for those with no printmaking experience and those wishing to refresh their skills. Suitable for ages 14 and up.
Maximum 10 participants.
