Stone Lithography 6 week course, 2nd April- 14th May.


Tuesday evenings 6-9pm. From 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 stone lithography including;

  • Stone graining

  • Drawing materials and methods

  • Stone etching and processing

  • The chemistry involved

  • Making deletions and adding marks

  • Printing and registration

  • Setting up the press

  • Ink mixing

  • Editioning multiple colour layers

  • Clearing up

    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

Please note there will be a two 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.
