Photo-litho

Weekend Course

This course is not currently on the schedule

Tutor: Kate Desforges

About the course:

Explore the possibilities of photo-plate lithography; a great alternative to traditional stone lithography. Plates are inexpensive, come pre-coated and pick up an amazing amount of detail. Hand-drawn and photographic imagery can be used, and the plates can be printed using an etching press. You will learn how to prepare images and transfer them onto plates by exposing to UV light, and how to take multiple prints from the plate. There will be time for making multiple plates, printing in register, experimenting with colour, and adding monoprint, with the aim of finding ways and ideas of how to incorporate the technique into your own practice.
