Lithography Printmaking: Stones (3 Days)
to Aug 18

Lithography Printmaking: Stones (3 Days)

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 3-day session 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 have worked with aluminium plates and are keen to discover the beauty of stones. We will explore the lithography process from start to finish, from drawing and processing, to printing and editioning.

Some materials will be provided, but participants will be expected to supply their own paper. A list of materials and suggestions will be sent out in advance.

PLEASE NOTE: stone lithography is a heavily physical medium, and participants will be required to move and lift heavy objects, perform repetitive movements, and operate hand-driven presses. If you have any physical limitations or are unsure of what is involved, please contact us prior to signing up so we can work through options together. We will also be running an Aluminium Plate Lithography course which is less physically demanding.

Date: Friday 16 August — Sunday 18 August 9:30am — 4:30pm
Students are welcome to stay until 6.30pm on Saturday and Sunday if extra printing time is required.

Location: Grey Hand Press, 28/16 Crockford Street, Northgate 4013

Cost: $380 + bf

Image Transfer Printmaking
6:30 PM18:30

Image Transfer Printmaking

In this workshop you will learn how to create image transfers from a paper matrix using a solvent transfer method. Solvent transfer allows you release an image from a toner photocopy to anything smooth and receptive – fine art papers, wood, and even some fabrics. This workshop will focus on transferring to printmaking papers and wood.

The capabilities of toner photocopies will be explored by using drawings, photographs, and sketchbook imagery to create your paper plate, and participants will be shown how to apply these techniques with an etching press and methods for application by hand.

Please contact instructor regarding any sensitivities to acetone, eucalyptus oil, citrus oils, or xylene, which may be used in small quantities during the workshop.

Date & Time

Friday 25 October, 6:30pm — 8:30pm
