2-day Introduction to Stone Lithography


2-day course at The Lemonade Press

Tuesday 31st May & Tuesday 7th June 2022

10am – 4pm

Course includes:

  • Stone lithography fundamentals
  • Drawing techniques and materials
  • Processing
  • Printing

This course is aimed at artists and teachers of lithography.

What will each participant gain?

A solid introduction to plate preparation, drawing materials, etching to stabilise the matrix for printing, registration, roller technique and printing.

Participants will be guided through the process in a small group which gives each person their own time with the tutor.

The four day course covers everything in the two day with the addition of using a second stone. This can be used as the artist wishes; either as a second colour layer for their first image or as an entirely new image. If you would like to register your interest to attend a four day course, please email us.

Which materials are provided?

  • Grained lithographic stone
  • Lithographic drawing materials
  • Inks

What do participants need to bring with them?

Do you offer other teaching in lithography?

Yes! We offer one to one teaching sessions which are focussed on the individual artist and these are tailored to the needs of the individual. These sessions are really useful if you would like to try out a particular technique for the first time, or refresh skills.
