This planographic printmaking process does magic with grease and water and is known to be
challenging to master. The workshop will teach you the basics of the ‘chemische druckerei’ invented by Alois Senefelder and will allow you to continue to explore stone lithography by yourself in the studio after completion.
You’ll be guided through the basics of hand graining the stone, drawing with special lithographic
crayons and pencils, the etching stages in order to fix the drawing in your stone and printing on paper in black ink with the use of a classic lithographic press. The delicacy and expressive character of the produced lines and surfaces are stunning; something that can’t be achieved by any other traditional printmaking technique.

Be prepared for a physical, immersive journey and get to understand the basics of this magical
technique!
