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.
