INTRODUCTION TO PLATE LITHOGRAPHY

The closest printmaking technique to drawing, lithography offers uniquely varied and beautiful mark-making. Invented in 1798 it has been used by many artists, from Toulouse-Lautrec, Bonnard, Picasso, and currently Paula Rego and Jim Dine, to name a few. Traditionally artists have drawn or transferred their image onto a special type of limestone block before printing from it. This two day introductory course uses aluminium plate, ball-grained to simulate the surface of stone. It is suitable both for beginners and those seeking to refresh their skills.
