New! Acid Biting Methods for Lithography
Speaker - John Pritchard
April 20th, 2023
7:00pm - 9:00pm
Members and guests are invited to join artist John Pritchard as he shares about recent studio explorations in stone lithography. Starting with a broad overview of the history of lithography, John will then focus on his treatments of the stone surface for printing, some methods for reductive printing as well as his techniques for scraping and acid biting.
John Pritchard was born in Calgary, and attended the University of Calgary, graduating with a BA, with a minor in Visual Art (anatomical drawing) and then attained a BFA from the Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design in Studio Printmaking. John focused on lithography primarily, and finished his BFA education by focusing on serigraphy. Recently, John took a refresher course in stone lithography at Alberta Printmakers and was able to revisit certain procedures in reductive printing.

Are you thirsty or overflowing?
Our goal is for these events to bring our community together and share tips and techniques with like minded artists. Please connect with us if you would like to be notified when new events are being posted OR if you have something that might work for a short, casual presentation*.
*Please note: these are not meant to be a mini workshop or hands on experience for participants (they would need to sign waivers for that). It is also not meant to be a full demonstration (i.e. all the steps to etch a copper plate) or other type of presentation requiring a full equipment/material set up. A short demo of a specialized technique is fine and bringing previous projects, sample work or images are encouraged.
