Kitchen Lithography

Learn how to print lithographs using kitchen foil, cola, lemon juice, soap and other readily available (and inexpensive) drawing materials. Kitchen lithography, which was pioneered by French illustrator Émilion about 15 years ago and has since been developed in other studios around the world, is great for anyone who enjoys drawing and experimenting with different kinds of mark-making. This one-day course will give you the basics you need to start exploring on your own. With a bit of practice, you will find that you can make surprisingly sophisticated and subtle prints — and also achieve surprisingly long print runs — using everyday ingredients.

Who is the course for?
This course is suitable both for beginners and experienced printmakers.

All drawing and printing materials will be provided and students will receive a set of notes about the process.
