This is a very immediate, cheap and safe printing technique, which uses common kitchen tinfoil instead of the traditional lithographic stone or plate. This workshop serves as a perfect introduction to the magic of lithography for printmakers, who previously may have felt daunted by the technique. It also offers teachers of lithography a relatively painless and speedy method to demonstrate the process to their students. No previous experience of printmaking is necessary. Participants in this workshop will learn how to make various marks on their plates using traditional lithographic materials and household products in a variety of unique ways.
