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. These three days are aimed primarily at those with some experience who wish to develop their skills, progressing to using stone and printing in colour. Please do contact us to discuss your particular requirements.
