with Liz Bannish
Lithography is a longtime method of printing from a flat surface, using only the phenomenon of oil repelling water to produce an image. When done using wood, the prints can have unexpected and beautiful results, often showing the grain of the wood. This workshop will introduce the artist to the process of wood lithography, or mokulito, where a drawing is made on a wooden plate, then inked and printed without carving.
Over this three day introduction, artists will learn the materials and methods best suited for producing a small, variable edition in the mokulito method. It requires none of the toxic chemistry that traditional litho requires, and offers additional mark making opportunities through carving the block or adding watercolor paint.
All levels of printmaking experience are welcome, but those already familiar with basic printmaking will be most comfortable with this finicky and magical process.
