An Introduction to Mokulito with Mary Dalton – Weekend 2/3 May
May 2 @ 10:00 - 16:00 BST£140
Mokulito is a printmaking technique developed in Japan some fifty years ago and translates as ‘Wood Lithography’. It’s a graphic technique similar to lithography but, as the name suggests, a wood substrate is used for mark making instead of the traditional Litho stone. Lithography relies on the resistance between oil and water, as does Mokulito. This process creates painterly effects and the use of Plywood allows for the addition of woodcut marks (relief) with an element of the wood grain in the resulting unique prints.
During this weekend course, Mary will introduce you to the delights of Mokulito. On the first day she will explain the technique and processes and give demonstrations on inking and printing the resulting plates. Everyone will then prepare their own plates and leave them overnight ready for printing the following day.
On the second day, Mary will help you to print your prepared plates and encourage you to experiment further with the use of masks and Chine-collé.
Dates: Weekend 2/3 May
Times: 10am to 4pm
