Saturday Feb 29 & Sunday 1st March 2020 9.00am–3:30pm
This workshop is designed to engage a range of creatives, from those with limited to no previous experience in printmaking, to intermediate and professional printmakers wanting to experiment with new materials and processes.
Traditional lithography uses an image drawn directly onto the smooth, level limestone plate. The stone is treated with a mixture of acid and gum Arabic which etches the greasy drawing onto the stone.
Kitchen Lithography adapts the idea of this process but uses non-toxic household chemicals. The drawing is made onto aluminium foil and etched with cola.This plate can be used through a press or adapted for hand printing.
