Waterless Lithography

Join us on February 23rd for an all-day workshop, 10 AM - 4PM with Press Member, Virginia Sitzes! In this workshop, participants will learn a process called "waterless lithography." This process is more intense than paper lithography but not as difficult as traditional stone lithography. Participants will draw onto an aluminum plate, rather than a stone, using water-based materials. While stone lithography is a time-intensive process that takes multiple days, during this workshop participants will learn a much quicker version of this type of printing, while also creating an original edition of their very own art! This is an intermediate printmaking class.
