Color Pronto Plate Lithography

September 23 @ 10:00 am - September 24 @ 5:00 pm


Saturday-Sunday, September 23-24, 10 AM – 5 PM

with Liz Bannish

Pronto Plate is an inexpensive and less-toxic way to create a lithographic print. It’s also a much lower-stakes and faster moving form of lithography, allowing for greater accessibility of experimentation and spontaneity.


In this workshop, we will cover the basic tenets of pronto plate lithography, including plate creation and processing, inking and printing, and more. Participants will utilize inexpensive materials such as ballpoint pens, sharpie markers, or laser jet printing to create their plates. Discover ink fundamentals, registration tips, and how to print pronto plates using an etching press. Artists will create unique or editionable prints that can easily incorporate hand drawn or photographic elements, or both. Learn the quick way to litho!


This workshop is suitable for all experience levels in printmaking, but some experience is recommended.
