Photo-Plate Lithography

Weekend Courses

Have all the painterly freedom and subtlety of a lithograph without grinding stones and with the minimum of processing. Explore layering images in colour to create painterly prints with a delicacy of mark and tone, characteristic to this medium. This course concentrates on using light sensitive aluminium photo plates.  These plates can produce detailed marks such as painterly washes, linear drawings, photocopied images, photographs, digital images and text. Participants learn how to print their image in several coloured layers onto paper. Each layer of colour is printed individually, taking care to register each new layer of ink on top of previously printed colours. (No previous experience required)
