Lithography

Direct stone lithography is a planographic printmaking technique, it differs from other traditional printmaking techniques such as etching and relief printing in that the print is taken from a smooth, chemically prepared surface rather than a surface which is etched away or cut-out.

In this section we will aim to demystify the lithography process through a step-by-step guide, some ‘top tips’, interviews with artists who use lithography in their work and links to more information. Our aim is to promote lithography to a wider audience and to encourage anyone interested to have a go!
