Intro to Waterless Lithography Part II

Taught by Chris Dunnett

Hosted by New Leaf Editions (1370 Cartwright St., Granville Isle)

We are once again putting our feelers out to see how many people would be interested in this 2 day weekend workshop.

Proposed dates are for the weekend of the 16th and the 17th of October.

The course will cover:

Using recycled aluminum plates, household silicone and a wide variety of drawing materials, this workshop will introduce students to the process of waterless lithography. We will cover the basics of plate preparation, processing and printing as well as more advanced topics of multi-color registration, transfers, intaglio techniques and the making of your own drawing materials.

The flexibility, forgiveness and non-technical nature of this process makes it ideal for those without a printmaking background to explore the expressive possibilities of print.

Proposed fee for the workshop: $200.00 Materials Included
