This one day workshop will introduce the basic principles of lithography, using aluminum foil, gum Arabic and lemon juice. Developed during the past year, Lemon Etch Litho is a method of using simple materials to produce small, beautifully tonal lithographs without a press. Based on Kitchen Litho, this method pushes the tonal capabilities of the process closer to traditional stone and plate litho.
Litho is often considered a complex and challenging medium, requiring a wide range of materials and equipment. This method shifts that concept around, using easily accessible materials. We will create an image from start to finish, including processing and printing a small set of prints onto thin Asian-style papers. We will also introduce methods of adhering our images onto backing sheets (chine collé)!
No prior printmaking experience is necessary.
