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 term-long class 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. Over the course of 8 weeks, 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.
Date: Thursday 2 May — Thursday 20 June (8 Weeks), 9:30am — 12:30pm
Location: Grey Hand Press, 28/16 Crockford Street, Northgate 4013
