DIY Printmaking
- West End Style

by Julia Swarbrick

Explore the art of printmaking at home with a range of DIY printmaking techniques that will get you started without a big budget. Some of the materials we will be using you will already have at home. The rest you should be able to find easily in the local area. I will be showing you a range of techniques including how to reproduce your drawings with the magic of cola lithography and how to make your own silk screen prints.  The
techniques are really versatile and will include printing on paper, card and textile. 

 

We will be taking Morecambe’s West End as a source of inspiration for all the artwork;  from the local wildlife to the fetes and festivals people enjoy. Practice the step by step instructions and discover your inner artist. Watch the videos and have a go yourself. I will give you all the instructions you need. 

 

My aspiration is that these tutorials will encourage you to start making artwork of your own and share ideas with friends and neighbours. The work you make can be shared online and maybe as the lockdown situation eases you will be inspired to put it in an exhibition. It would be great to see the work people make. While we can’t have an exhibition at the moment, you might want to organise print swaps with a friend or neighbour or put your artwork in the window celebrating the neighbourhood and its creativity.

Cola Lithography

Kitchen Lithography is an exciting mixture of Art and Science. It’s a way to create your own Lithographic prints straight from your drawings without the need for noxious chemicals. Using ordinary cola you will  learn a  single hand drawn image into multiple prints. Produce a set of postcards or artwork to share.
