Chine-collé is a beautiful technique that allows you to add colour to your prints, by adhering delicate papers such as Japanese paper to your printing paper before running your image through the press .

In this 2 day workshop you will learn how to use Chine-collé and coloured ink to produce a 2 layer stone lithograph.

We will cover all of the basics of lithography including;

  • Stone graining

  • Drawing materials and methods

  • Stone etching and processing

  • Printing and registration

  • Chine-collé preperation and printing.

  • Ink mixing

  • Setting up the press

  • Printing

  • clearing up

    The class is suitable for beginners and those who want to refresh their skills. It is also a great follow on for any printmaker who has tried lithography before and wants to practice new techniques.

    All materials included.

    Homemade cake, tea, coffee, & squash are on offer throughout the class.

Class size: 3

What to bring?

  • Any 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. 

  • A packed lunch
