Instructor: Patricia Cudd
Levels: Beginner and Beyond
Class Description: Less technically challenging than traditional lithography, paper lithography produces professional quality prints. It does not rely on harsh chemicals, expensive plates or supplies. Equipment is minimal; prints can also be hand burnished. For new, as well as seasoned, printmakers wanting to experiment with lithography, the class will emphasize creativity through photocopy manipulation, printing successfully and collating prints into a book. Participants will learn to print directly and successfully from a paper “plate.” After manipulating images with hand-drawn elements along with collage and photocopier mechanics, the final photocopy plate will be inked and the image transferred onto print paper. Prints will then be incorporated into a book using Drum Leaf Binding; a method that requires no sewing and allows for images to open as a full page spread. Discussions will be held about image manipulation and successful printing of the plates, for editioning as well as for monoprints or mixed media.
