Photo Plate Lithography Weekend
Sat, 3 December 2022 - Sun, 4 December 2022
Weekend-long course, 10am-5:30pm
Edinburgh Printmakers - 1 Dundee Street, Fountainbridge, Edinburgh, EH3 9FP
On 3 & 4 December have all the freedom and subtlety of a lithograph without grinding stones and with minimal processing.
Explore layering images in colour to create painterly prints with a delicacy of mark and tone, characteristic to this medium.
This course concentrates on using light sensitive aluminium photo plates. These plates can produce detailed marks such as painterly washes, linear drawings, photocopied images, photographs, digital images and text. Participants will learn how to print their image in several coloured layers onto paper. Each layer of colour is printed individually, taking care to register each new layer of ink on top of previously printed colours.
