WORKSHOP: Introduction to Traditional and Expanded Lithography
DATES: every week on a Tuesday starting 23 August 2016 (8 weeks)
Spots are limited, so buy your booking now!
Lithography is a unique printmaking medium that is based on the principle that oil and water repel one another. Unlike many other printmaking mediums, lithography is a chemical process, which incorporates direct drawing techniques to produce beautiful prints with a unique aesthetic. By attaining a working knowledge of such techniques, participants will gain the ability to work in a range of studios and their homes, even without a press.
This 8-week course is designed as an introduction to the lithography medium, and would suit those who are yet to explore the world of lithography, would like a refresher course, or who would like to explore aluminium plate lithography and expanded methods such as paper lithography and kitchen lithography.
