Thursday evenings the Printshop will become a cross between experimental print workshop, kitchen chemistry lab and art space, exploring ways of making images using low-toxicity chemicals and stuff you can do with ordinary kitchen materials.
Lithography is traditionally done using great slabs of beautiful (and heavy) limestone or sheets of polished metal. It’s a technique which is capable of reproducing a great richness of tone and texture, and has been used by many of the 19th and 20th century’s most accomplished printmakers (Goya, Picasso).
But did you know that you can explore this most sensitive of printmaking techniques using kitchen tinfoil and… Coca-Cola? In this experimental session we roll our sleeves up and have a go using stuff you might find in your kitchen at home!
