Stone Lithography Weekend


Stone Lithography, the original (and best!) type of lithography is still favoured by many artists. Find out why. Drawing directly onto a prepared limestone surface gives opportunity for a spontaneous approach to mark-making. Find out how artists with wide ranging styles from MC Escher, Picasso, Jasper Johns and Kathe Kolwitz have delighted in the subtleties of the stone.

This course gives a comprehensive introduction to Stone Lithography and is suitable for people without previous lithography experience or for those wishing to refresh their skills. Emphasis is given to stone lithography as a drawing and painting medium, working directly on this wonderful robust drawing surface. Learn how to paint with water-tusche washes, achieving the astonishing 'reticulated washes' peculiar to stone lithography. Focusing on learning the process and working mainly in monochrome, we will explore traditional approaches to mark-making using tusche crayon and wash as well as alternative drawing methods. Learn all about processing of images on stone and how to stabilise the image for printing before taking a number of prints to show the development of your drawing at different stages. During the course we will work to aprox. A3: 28 x 38.5cm
