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 will introduce participants to two variations on the lithographic process over three days – polyplate lithography, which utlises polyester matrices; and mokulito (wood lithography) whereby an image is taken from a sheet of plywood. Prior knowledge and instruction in traditional lithography, while beneficial, is not essential.
Most materials will be provided, but participants will be expected to bring their own printing paper or purchase some from the studio on the day. A list of materials and suggested papers will be sent out in advance. Coffee, tea and snacks will be provided, but please BYO lunch. There are also cafes and stores nearby to purchase lunch from, if needed.
Dates: Friday 29 — Sunday 31 March 2019, 9:30am — 4:00pm
Location: Grey Hand Press, 28/16 Crockford St, Northgate 4013
