Exploring Litho Printing with Christopher Hagen
This class focuses upon the basics of aluminium plate lithography and contemporary variations. Though traditional litho is often considered a technically demanding method, it is a versatile medium capable of detailed pencil-like marks and bold washes. Its principles have given rise to simplified, highly accessible forms such as polyester plate, aluminium foil "kitchen litho" and other variations. A working knowledge of these techniques will allow students to work in a range of studios and their homes, some without a press.
