Aluminium Plate Lithography Intensive (Four Days)
Lithography is a unique printmaking medium that is based on the principle that oil and water repel one another. About this Event Lithography is a unique printmaking medium that is based on the principle that oil and water repel one another. Unlike many other printmaking mediums, lithography is a chemical process, which incorporates direct drawing techniques to produce beautiful prints with a unique aesthetic. This three day class is designed as an introduction to the lithography medium, and would suit those who are yet to explore the world of lithography, would like a refresher course, or who would like to explore aluminium plate lithography. We will explore the lithography process from start to finish, from drawing and processing, to printing and editioning. Most materials will be provided, but participants will be expected to supply their own paper. A list of materials and suggestions will be sent out in advance, and paper may be purchased from the studio throughout the workshop. Dates : Saturday 6 & Sunday 7 June and Saturday 13 & Sunday 14 June, 9:30am — 4.30pm each day. Please read our Refund Policy outlined below for information about cancellations and refunds.

What's the refund policy? • Cancellation by Grey Hand Press For most workshops, we only require a minimum of two participants for classes to run. Some sessions where we require a minimum of 4 to 6 in order to cover set up costs and, unfortunately, there are times where we do not reach the minimum and classes need to be cancelled. In the instance that a class is cancelled by Grey Hand Press due to low numbers, we will provide all participants with notice at least 3 days prior to the first day of class, and fees will be refunded to the participants in full. If a workshop is cancelled due to uncontrollable circumstances less than two days prior, participants will be notified and provided with a full refund, as well as a discount to use on another class with us. • Cancellation by students If a participant needs to cancel their workshop booking, they can do so by contacting Grey Hand Press to request cancellation within seven days of the workshop date. If a cancellation request is received within this time, a full refund will be provided. As we prepare materials based on the number of attendants, if a cancellation request is received less than 5 days prior to the start of the workshop, Grey Hand Press will retain 50% of the booking amount in order to cover the preparations that have already been made for the student’s place in the workshop. If a cancellation is made within 24 hours of the workshop date, unfortunately we cannot provde any refund. We understand that life happens and cancellations may need to take place, however, as a small business we also need to cover our costs.
