Stone Lithography Weekend Course January 11/12
An introduction into stone lithography; during the weekend we will cover the basics of stone lithography so you can leave with the understanding of a printmaker and a set of editioned prints and proofs.
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 drawing. This method of printmaking allows for an enormous range of mark making and captures detail with exquisite subtleties.
During this weekend course we will cover:
- Drawing materials and mark making
- Technical process of etching
- Paper handling
- Ink mixing
- Set up and use of the direct litho press
- Editioning of the prints
- Removing the image and graining
There will be the opportunity to arrange a return to the studio to continue printing if you would like to.
Suitable for those with no printmaking experience and those wishing to refresh their skills. Maximum 4 participants.
