2° Course: July 23 – August 6, 2015
Prof. Witold Warzywoda - Head of the Lithography Techniques Studio
Assistant: Tomasz Matczak, PhD
The goal of the course is to acquaint participants with the wide range of surface printing methods from the traditional lithography to innovative alternative techniques.
The classical method comprises stone lithography made in a traditional way with a crayon or ink, the engraving technique, bitumen of Judea, xerox transfer and shellac varnish. The modern method comprises an acrylic-polyester plate which allows the artist to involve the digital graphics in the process of preparing the plate (the print is transferred from a laser printer or a photocopier directly to a plate which serves as a matrix). It also permits instant preparation of a matrix by using all waterproof drawing materials which can carry printing ink (a permanent marker, a ballpoint pen, shellac). The combination of the classical and modern methods can surely enrich the artistic effect of the works.
