About the Course
During the weekend you will be introduced to the basics of stone lithography and you will have your own stone to work from. We will look at the work of artists Käthe Kollwitz, Paula Rego, Pablo Picasso, David Hockney and many others who have favoured stone lithography and mastered the effects within their image making. This method of printmaking allows for an enormous range of mark making and captures detail with exquisite subtleties. You will finish the weekend with a small edition of prints and proofs.
During this weekend course we will cover:
• Drawing materials and mark making
• Technical process of etching
• Paper handling
• Set up and use of the direct lithographic press
• Printing (assisting each other in pairs)
• Editioning of the prints
• Removing the image and grinding the stone
The session is taught by Scarlett Rebecca. This workshop is suitable for those with no printmaking experience and those wishing to refresh their skills.

What's included in the price?
Please bring your own imagery to work - all other materials will be provided. Tea, coffee and biscuits will be provided throughout the session. Tea, coffee and biscuits will be available throughout the session and there will be a lunch break halfway through the day – you are welcome to bring a packed lunch or go out for lunch at a nearby café.
A thoroughly enjoyable course and excellent value for money, the course is suitable for an absolute beginner and also someone looking to hone their stone lithography skills.
It’s well-structured but you have the flexibility to veer off into your own worlds of lithography experimentation if you want, all supported by the wonderful Scarlett who knows rather a lot about the whole subject! And as an added bonus it was a good laugh, so sign up and see what stones can do for you!
