Kitchen Lithography Workshop : Drawing with Chocolate May 29th
Kitchen lithography is a good introduction into lithography as it works within the same principle that oil and water do not mix, only 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 evening workshop we will cover:
- Creating a kitchen litho plate
- Drawing materials and mark making
- Etching technical process
- Ink mixing
- Paper handling
- Set up and use of the direct litho press
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.
