About this Event

ETCHING AND PROCESSING (LITHOGRAPHY)

This session covers the most complex (and nerve-wracking!) stage in lithography — processing. We discuss step-by-step and demonstrate techniques for etching a stone matrix. Lithography is a chemical process, and as such, the chemistry of etching will be discussed in some detail to help us better understand the process. This will be followed by a demonstration on washing out and rolling up to prepare for printing.

Date & Time: Wednesday 29 April, 6:30pm* — 8:30pm

*Session starts at 6:30pm sharp, doors open from 6:00pm. Attendees are encouraged to arrive between 6:00pm and 6:15pm to allow time to settle in beforehand. Session will run until 8:30pm.

Location: Grey Hand Press, Unit 28/ 16 Crockford Street, Northgate

ABOUT THE TECHNICAL SERIES

These short lectures and demonstrations will discuss the finer points of printmaking process and will cover topics such as stone graining and selection, etching processes, editioning, paper selection and preservation, and basic conservation techniques. While some of these sessions will focus on techniques specific to lithography, many will be applicable to all printmaking methods.

To be held on the fourth Wednesday of each month*, the series will be designed as an ‘a la carte’ format, allowing attendees to come along to the lectures that are most useful or relevant to their practice; whether that is just a select few, or all twelve sessions on offer. Discounts are available if five or all eleven sessions are booked at any one time. When booking a multi-session ticket, you may select which sessions you would like to attend.

Please note: these sessions are not workshops, but rather demonstrations and opportunities for open discussion, knowledge exchange, and conversation about printmaking methods and processes. Bring along your own experiences and questions to share with the group!

Refreshments available in the ticket price. Please advise on any dietary requirements when booking.

* There will be no session in December.
