What you'll do

Please note, you will be booked in for both days of this course when making your booking. The course dates are Tuesdays 31st May and 7th June 2022, 10am-4pm.

This two-day practical course is the perfect introduction to the fascinating art of stone lithography – that's right, making prints from limestone! Your host Catherine is an experienced printmaker and artist and will guide you every step of the way as you learn the process and begin to make your own striking prints.

Day 1 covers drawing and etching the stone and day 2 is printing!

Put simply, stone lithography is all about drawing and painting onto slabs of limestone and then making prints from them. It’s an old-fashioned, hands-on method of printmaking and has been popular with some of the best… Pablo Picasso, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec and Henry Moore have all made lithographs.

As lithography is so versatile, everyone is welcome to give it a go and enjoy the process in this weekend workshop. If you’re a graphic designer who wants to shake off the screen, a painter who wants to explore a graphic medium or someone who wants to scratch a creative itch, lithography is ideal. To get you started, make sure you bring some images to work from or have your sketchbook on hand and by the end of the workshop, you’ll have created some wonderful prints to take home and show off.

Minimum fitness level required.
