PAPER LITHOGRAPHY - ADVANCED


Whether you are new to printmaking or are seeking to expand your skills, Print Lab Australia offers a range of workshops that will cater for your needs.




In this workshop you will learn how to transfer your photographs onto printmaking paper using gum Arabic and oil-based ink. We will show you how to combine paper lithography with existing prints and create multilayered artwork using color inks and collage techniques.

Paper lithography is an exciting, simple and non-toxic way to create monoprints or to add photographic elements to your existing prints. In this process a black and white photocopy is used as a plate (matrix), which is then inked and printed through the etching press.

This 3-hour workshop is suitable for beginners and intermediate printmakers as well as more advanced artists who would like to expand their skill set.


*All materials are supplied, with additional specialist printmaking paper for sale as required. We are only able to accept cash at this time, so please bring small change with you. Items are priced between $3-$10.


Light snacks and refreshments will be supplied.




Register for two classes (Etching & Chine Collé and Paper Lithography) in one day and receive a $25 discount*. These two processes compliment each other - you can add lithographic elements to your drypoint prints created in the morning workshop.

* This price excludes the Easter Special.





You will be expertly guided through the process by PLA directors, Monika Lukowska and Melanie McKee.

Monika is an artist from Poland currently based in Perth. She obtained her MA from the E. Geppert Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Wroclaw, Poland and MFA from San Francisco Art Institute, USA. Monika’s artworks have been widely exhibited internationally in China, Japan, Turkey, Sweden and Germany amongst others, and she is currently pursuing her PhD in Fine Arts at Curtin University in Perth. Her main interest encompasses place and the ways in which we can discover our surroundings through creative practice.

Melanie is a printmaker and art teacher, dividing her time between the studio and Curtin University where she teaches printmaking and art history. She has exhibited both locally and internationally, notably in group exhibitions at the China Academy of Art in Hangzhou China (2015), and a solo exhibition at Tuner Galleries in Perth (2017). Melanie has been awarded several grants in order to carry out her research and creative practice. She has a PhD in Fine Art, and her interests centre on how memory of place can be explored through printmaking practice.
