Hands-On Lithography for Conservators FULL

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity full

Lithography is a complex, chemical printmaking process that requires firsthand experience to fully grasp the technique and potential artistic applications. This workshop introduces conservators to various lithographic processes and techniques commonly utilized by artists and studios, historically and up to this day. The curriculum consists primarily of hands-on printing activities but will also include lectures and group discussions. A comprehensive resource binder will be assembled by the participants throughout the workshop from a combination of lecture slides, notes, printing materials (plates and prints), and other useful references. This will allow participants to walk away with a strong understanding of the technique and have invaluable resources at their fingertips when returning to work.

Transportation will be provided from the Marriot Marquis Houston each morning and back to the Marriot Marquis Houston following the workshop each evening. The bus will depart from the Marriot at 8:15am.
