Create immediate, beautiful results using only ingredients you would find in your kitchen - draw with chocolate and soap and etch with lemon juice or cola!

A good introduction into lithography, kitchen lithography works within the same principle that oil and water do not mix. However, in this workshop the process relies on ingredients you would find in your kitchen. We will draw with chocolate and soap and etch with lemon juice or coke.

Invented by Émilee Aizier as a non-toxic alternative to traditional lithography, Kitchen Lithography gives immediate results and achieves an impressive range of marks and subtlety that you can reproduce at home. Some materials provided.

During this workshop we will cover:

Creating a kitchen litho plate
Drawing materials and mark making
Etching technical process
Ink mixing
Paper handling

All abilities welcome.

This workshop has been inspired by Barnett Freedmans extensive use of lithography in Barnett Freedman: Designs for Modern Britain.

Tea, coffee and biscuits included but not lunch, please bring a packed lunch or grab a snack in our cafe.
