Waterless lithography uses silicon and aluminium plates and is quicker, safer and less-toxic than conventional lithography. Come and learn how to create your own waterless lithographic prints in this beginners introduction, or expand on your previous knowledge with guidance from Simone and Wendy.
Notes from Simone:
I tend to configure my workshops to suit the participants – so no matter if people are beginner-printmakers or more experienced. (If I think individuals will cope with additional aspects to the process I add them in as we go.) Everyone will go home with resolved prints.
The printmakers who did Liz Wauchope’s 4-day workshop a couple of years ago could use either the first or the second session as a refresher. (I do great notes – suitable for beginners, as well as those who did Liz’s workshop run by Annie & Robyn Day.)
Students can see some of the prints made by previous students in our class albums… go to www.facebook.com/UnionStPrintmakers , click Photos, then Albums, then Class Prints – Waterless Lithography.
