Lithography Resources

Lithography is an intricate printmaking process that revolves around grease and water resisting one another. It is known for its ability to faithfully reproduce hand-drawn marks without intermediary processing. Lithographic prints can be created using stone, metal plates or laser photocopies.

Students must complete an induction in the relevant print technique before using any equipment in this workshop. If you have any questions regarding the use of the facilities or inductions, or regarding any printmaking matters please contact me via email.
