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.
This workshop presents a new take on the lithography medium, providing participants with an introduction to "kitchen lithography" - a quick, non-toxic and simplified method of creating lithographic prints using basic household materials.
Participants will be shown the kitchen lithography process, with an opportunity to create prints of their own, as well as instruction and tutorial on how to combine this process with other mediums.
Participants are encouraged to supply their own notebook/visual diary, good quality printmaking paper, and rice paper. These items will be available for purchase on the day from the ArtWorld Studio Gallery Shop.
In compliance with Workshop Health & Safety regulations, all participants must bring their own aprons and wear closed-in shoes.
Tea and coffee will be provided.

Claudia Husband is practicing visual artist and textile designer trained in printmaking in both Australia and the United States, currently residing in Brisbane. She completed a Bachelor of Fine Art with the Queensland College of Art in 2012, and attended the Tamarind Institute in Albuquerque, USA, to complete a summer workshop in aluminium plate lithography.
Working initially as an edition printer and workshop presenter in lithographic and intaglio printmaking, Claudia expanded her practice into the world of textile design in early 2014, and has since worked as a textile artist both independently, and collaboratively with local fashion designers. She has designed the textiles for three consecutive collections with award-winning Australian fashion label Tengdahl, and has seen her designs launched on the runway at the Mercedes Benz Fashion Festival in both 2014 and 2015. Focusing primarily in print design, she also practices in dyed, woven, and spun fibres; and is the primary owner and creator behind Tawny Threads.
Claudia conducts workshops in textiles (indigo dyeing, shibori and tapestry weaving) and printmaking (traditional lithography and introductory intaglio) with several art studios, and independently with high schools and creative businesses throughout Brisbane.
