Tuesday evenings 2nd April - 14th May
This 6 week evening class offers the opportunity to learn and explore the process of stone lithography in depth. Lithography is a beautiful printmaking method, allowing the artist to simply draw on to the surface of limestone as you would in a sketch book.
We will cover all of the basics of lithography including;
Drawing materials and methods
Stone etching and processing
The chemistry involved
Making deletions and adding marks
Printing and registration
Setting up the press
Editioning multiple colour layers
You will leave the course with a small edition of prints in 2 or more colours, and a whole lot of knowledge!
Class size: 4
Thursday evenings 6-9pm.
Please note there will be a week break during Easter.
What to bring ?
· Imagery that you would like to work from. Sketches or photographs of things or places that interest you are a good starting point.
· I will have aprons to protect your clothing. I do however recommend that you wear old clothes, as we will be using oil based inks and if they come into contact with clothes can be difficult to remove.
Refeshments of baked goods, tea and coffee are included.
