Waterless lithograph
saturday 17, sunday 18 and monday 19 january
waterless lithography - latest innovations with annie day

This is a new, safer printmaking technique. Water used in traditional lithography is replaced by a fine silicone coating which rejects the ink from non-image areas making it very easy to ink in the plate. A waterless lithograph can be indistinguishable from a traditional lithograph and is safer and faster for the printmaker to produce. During the course you can expect to master this method's amazing applications and have an interesting portfolio of your prints to take home.

Time: 10am to 4pm
Members: $270.00 plus $20.00 materials fee Non members: $295.00 + $20.00 materials fee (includes Assoc. Membership)
