Stone Lithography with Helen Lavery - SOLD OUT
Learn to prepare, draw and etch a stone from scratch. In this 5 week course, participants will explore the range of materials available for drawing, painting on and printing from a traditional limestone matrix. By no means a way of reproducing finished works – lithography encompasses and achieves a range of mark-making and drawing qualities like no other printmaking medium.
