Be seduced by the Bavarian limestone as the course de-mystifies this beautiful printmaking process.
The four day workshop will focus on techniques for the successful printing of stone lithographs and includes the theory and chemistry of stone lithography, drawing techniques and materials, processing and printing.
The workshop helps students to translate their ideas as they draw directly onto the grease receptive limestone surface using a range drawing of materials such as pencils, crayons and tusche washes.
Students will also learn how to process the stone and try their hand at printing an edition.
