Introduction to Photo Plate Lithography

November 11, 2023November 12, 2023

with Karina Savage

This event is now fully booked.

An alternative to stone lithography, this process enables hand-drawn, photographic or digital film positives to be transferred onto a light-sensitive aluminium lithographic plate and printed on an etching press. These plates can produce detailed marks such as painterly washes, linear drawings, photocopied images, photographs and text.

On this 2-day course, you will be shown how to prepare imagery, expose and develop your plate, and then ink and print. There will be the opportunity to experiment with using chîne collé in your prints enabling you to experiment with different types of imagery and colour.

Beginners & refresher course

Non-members – £198
Members – £189

About Karina

Karina got her first taste of printing during her art foundation course at Norwich School of Art, creating large abstract screen prints exploring the potential of overlapping and reconfiguring simple colours and shapes. This exploration continued throughout her degree at Camberwell School of Art where her practice focussed on exploring the relationships and tensions between form, function and decoration.
