Kitchen lithography is a non-toxic variation of traditional stone lithography, utilitsing materials you can find in your kitchen. We will draw with chocolate and crayons and etch our drawing to the plate with cola.
The lithographic process translates the drawn mark incredibly faithfully and allows for a huge amount of subtlety in the mark making, so if you like drawing then this is the course for you.
You can get immediate results which is perfect if you like to create spontaneous marks and quick-fire sketches. The aluminium foil is a brilliant drawing surface because it’s cheap. This means you can feel uninhibited when drawing on it because if it goes wrong you can just tear it off and start again.
During this course you will work at your own pace, fitting your printing time around your day to day life. You will work through the processes demonstrated to you in the tutorial videos, whether you are a a complete beginner or experiences printmaker you will be able to adapt your prints to suit your style and level of experience.
