Kitchen Lithography

Free

[ Online Workshop )

This event has passed.

Turn your kitchen into an artist's studio.

Create your own unique prints using chocolate, soap, lemon juice or cola in this intimate workshop – all from the comfort of your own home.

Unlike traditional lithographic printing, kitchen lithography gives 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 fun workshop for all abilities led by Scarlett Rebecca.

  • Printmaking pack sent to your home jam-packed with materials (see below)

Scarlett Rebecca has been teaching printmaking for over 10 years. After a serendipitous shuffle of job roles at Brighton University Scarlett was introduced to lithography 5 years ago and fell in love immediately. She now has two direct lithographic presses and nearly 20 stones! Scarlett works between her studios in Brighton and North Wales, teaching printmaking and producing intricately patterned portraits in relief print and lithography.
