Introduction to Kitchen Litho | Sat 19th May
May 19 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm£60
Kitchen Litho is an exciting alternative to traditional lithography techniques. It was developed and first described by a French artist, Emilie Aizier www.atelier-kitchen-print.org in 2011. The process uses readily available household products such as aluminium cooking foil and Coca Cola. We will be encouraging lots of trial and error!.
Kitchen Litho is a great way to explore planographic print making. You will be on the course with a maximum of three other people to ensure that you will get the best experience out of the day. The course will introduce you to the basic kitchen litho techniques for single colour printing and will include:
- A brief study of examples of kitchen litho prints.
- Exploration of range of mark making techniques
- Preparation of aluminium foil plate
- Development of your design
- Treatment and inking up of the aluminium foil plate
- Printing out your designs using a professional press
No previous experience required. All materials and lunch* will be provided. The course will be led by Lisa Hurcum and Hugh Davies.
* Lunch will be vegetarian/pescatarian using locally sourced products where possible. Please advise us in advance of any specific dietary requirements.
