Description

Introduction to Paper Lithography covers ways to create excellent image transfers from a paper matrix. Paper lithography is a planographic printmaking process, relying on the separation of water and oil and the matrix or printing plate is standard copy paper!  The capabilities of the copy machine will be explored by using drawings, photographs, and sketchbook imagery to create your paper plate. The toner can be released onto paper, wood, smooth fabrics, or metal plates, for starters. Learn how to apply these techniques with an etching press and methods for application by hand.Please contact instructor regarding any sensitivities to mineral turps, acetone, eucalyptus oil, or xylene, which may be used in small quantities during the workshop.

12 July 2016 • Intro to Paper Lithography

The highlight for me was learning how to use a photocopies of my own drawings to create a lithograph that I printed in different colours and combinations. I felt that I learned as much in the one evening as I often to at workshops covering a whole weekend. The instructor, Chris Hagen, was excellent. His deep knowledge of lithography was evident but the concepts to be understood were conveyed in a simple non-patronizing manner and each practical step was demonstrated efficiently. Yes I would recommend this class .
