Lithography Master Class

with Professor David Ferry

Friday 18th - Sunday 20th August 2017

"Using a special drawing (transfer) paper already made for you we will draw to our hearts content , and then transfer the drawing  to the prepared lithographic plate. We can have real fun manipulating the image through overlays and whatever else takes our fancy at the time. This master class is about fun and making an image, and absolutely no prior knowledge is required. I plan to take the 'process' out of the equation leaving us free to explore the wonderful world of simple lithography. You never know what it may lead to!" 

Join members of the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers on this immersive weekend led by the irrepressible encylopaedia of printmaking possibilities, Professor David Ferry. Designed as a full weekend with accommodation and catering provided, it is also possible for those based locally to book for the course alone. Some informal teaching and discussion will take place at mealtimes so we hope to encourage everyone to attend these. The course starts at 7pm on Friday and concludes after lunch on Sunday, although it is possible to stay on and continue printing on Sunday afternoon for those that would like to. 

Course fee: £125 (includes a basic pack of plate and materials). There are additional charges for accommodation, camping and meals. To check availability and discuss options please contact Jackie Morris on 01544 260149, email
