Event description

Description

Lithography is a unique printmaking medium that is based on the principle that oil and water repel one another. Unlike many other printmaking mediums, lithography is a chemical process, which incorporates direct drawing techniques to produce beautiful prints with a unique aesthetic.

This workshop will introduce participants to two variations on the lithographic process over three days – polyplate lithography, which utlises polyester matrices; and mokulito (wood lithography) whereby an image is taken from a sheet of plywood. Prior knowledge and instruction in traditional lithography, while beneficial, is not essential.

Most materials will be provided, but participants will be expected to bring their own printing paper or purchase some from the studio on the day. A list of materials and suggested papers will be sent out in advance. Coffee, tea and snacks will be provided, but please BYO lunch. There are also cafes and stores nearby to purchase lunch from, if needed.

Please read the refund and cancellation policy outlined below before booking.

Dates: Friday 29 — Sunday 31 March 2019, 9:30am — 4:00pm each day (with lunch breaks)

FAQs

What's the refund policy?

• Cancellation by Organiser

We require a minimum of four participants in order for most of our workshops to run. Unfortunately, there are times where we do not reach the minimum participation and classes need to be cancelled. In the instance that a class is cancelled by Grey Hand Press due to low numbers, we will provide all participants with notice at least 4 days prior to the first day of class, and fees will be refunded to the participants in full.

If a workshop is cancelled due to uncontrollable circumstances such as illness or force majeure, participants will be notified and provided with a full refund, as well as a discount to use on another class with GHP.

• Cancellation by students

If a participant needs to cancel their workshop booking, they can do so by contacting Grey Hand Press to request cancellation within four days of the workshop date. If a cancellation request is received within this time, a full refund will be provided.

As we prepare materials based on the number of attendants, if a cancellation request is received less than 4 days prior to the start of the workshop, Grey Hand Press will retain 50% of the booking amount in order to cover the preparations that have already been made for the student’s place in the workshop. If a cancellation is made within 24 hours of the workshop date, unfortunately we cannot provde any refund. We understand that life happens and cancellations may need to take place, however, as a small business we also need to cover our costs.

Alternatively, prospective students are welcome to pass on their place in the workshop to another person. Just get in touch to let us know!

What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

There are a couple of parking spaces out the front of the studio, however, there is plenty of free on-street parking on Crockford Street as well. The studio is located within the Northgate Workstores precinct on the corner of Crockford St and Earnshaw Rd. Access to the GHP studio is from the Crockford Street entrance.

We are a short walk from Bindha train station (Shorncliffe line), and both Northgate and Banyo train stations are located approximately 15 mins walking distance from the studio.

Is it ok if the name on my ticket or registration doesn't match the person who attends?

Yes! If you cannot attend, you are welcome to give your ticket to someone else. Just let us know prior to the event!
