REMOTE HOMESPUN PAPER LITHOGRAPHY
Instructor: Liz Bannish
February 8, 2022, 1 – 3 PM
Tuesday, 2 – hour online workshop
$40 Members & Non-members
Learn how to create simple lithographic prints using digital processes and toner copies in this quick-and-easy afternoon online workshop.
Participants will use a basic Photoshop workflow to produce paper “plates” from which we will pull hand-printed lithographs, without a press. Photographs can be manipulated, or drawings can be scanned, then output as printouts which can then be hand-inked and printed like traditional lithographs. Whether from home or in a printmaking studio, this is a photo-lithographic method that works wherever you are, as it doesn’t require harsh chemicals or fancy equipment.
This workshop will be held online via Zoom. Previous photoshop experience is recommended.
This online workshop will cover basic concepts of lithography, image making, and printing. A suggested materials list with vendor information will be supplied within appropriate time to place orders if desired.
