Lithography classes and workshops with Alice

Lithography is a printing process in which artists use greasy drawing materials to make original images on stones and/or metal plates, which are then printed onto paper. This technique does not require any specific skills, and is open to anyone who wants to draw, paint, write and look for textures.

We particularly like lithography as it allows for the most direct translation of drawing; it offers an exciting variety of marks and textures to work with, and the combinations of colours and layers have endless subtleties and possibilities. Our artistic practice in general is very much influenced by this process.

Lithographs differ from etchings, engravings, screen prints and woodcuts in materials and process. For example, etchings and engravings are printed from a metal plate with incised lines, screen printing uses a fine mesh through which ink is pushed, and woodcuts are printed from blocks of wood carved in relief. A lithograph is made from a chemically treated, flat surface, traditionally limestone, or specially prepared metal plates.

In each case, what distinguishes the print as original is that the artist participated directly in the creation of the image.

 

 

WORKSHOPS WITH ALICE

The workshops are for people who like making images by drawing and in other ways. Lithography offers many possibilities of marks (toner print transfer, drawing with a crayon, with ink, or just doing some research of textures and colors). This technique does not require skills in drawings. This workshop can be a discovery for you and for me, and I am very pleased to share this old printing process with curious people.
 

Workshop details:

-2 days (in the week or week-ends – please see the calendar just below)
from 11:00 to 6:00 
-2 people max
 -220 €TTC/person
 -190 €TTC/person for young graduated artists (since two years)
 
All the material is provided (neutral ph paper, inks, and other…)
This workshop will be a good way to approach stone lithography. We will work for two days on the different steps of this printing process, and you will bring home an edition you have entirely realised.
 
First day
-presentation of the stone lithography technique (showing original prints)
-graining the stones (just finishing! I will have done the graining beforehand).
-drawing on the stones (from a sketch or just an idea of texture)
-etching the drawing on the stone with gum arabic and nitric acid
 
Second day
-ink preparation
-paper preparation
-press set up
-proof printing
-print of a small edition
