Limerick Printmakers weekend Photo Lithography course is a fantastic entry point into a method that is simultaneously traditional and modern.
No previous experience is required as this course is designed to cover all the basics.
Traditionally, lithography would be associated with printing on limestone tablets but photo lithography is a more accessible form of the technique which allows students to use the same tools and materials without preparing a stone.
Using this method, LP can convey & teach the photo lithography process in a shorter period to allow students to then decide if they would like to explore it further or if they would be similarly interested in stone lithography.
LP tutor Brian will give every student a clear overview of the process including common issues and challenges while working with them to realise their print. There will be ample time for note taking and questions.
The course is designed to be hands-on and practical and is held in a professional and welcoming studio environment.
This course will include:
• Studio health and safety/best practice
• Introduction to the process of photo based lithography
• Preparation of artwork/imagery to make a plate
• Advice in relation to suitable papers and ink
• Printing – setting pressure on printing bed, registration of print, trouble shooting & common issues etc.
