Introduction to: Mokulito – Plywood Lithography

Introduction to: Mokulito – Plywood Lithography

Weekend Course
Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th March 2022
10am – 4pm

Join artist, printmaker and WYPW Technician Kate Desforges for this hands-on course exploring plywood lithography, or ‘Mokulito’. Plywood lithography takes the basic principles of stone lithography, and applies them instead to a prepared plywood surface. Traditional lithographic drawing materials are used to draw and paint onto the plywood surface. The drawing is then processed using gum arabic, and the block is inked up and printed using the etching press. Blocks can also be cut into using woodcutting tools, to create a print with the characteristics of a lithograph in combination with a woodcut. Because of the coarser nature of wood in comparison to stone, fine detail cannot always be retained, so this process would suit those who have a more experimental approach to image-making, embracing and working with the natural properties of the wood.
