Litho stone ready for drawing

Join artist printmaker Michelle Avison for a very fast one day introduction to stone lithography. We are repeating this one day course as so many people were interested in lithography after seeing our recent show of prints by Virginia Powell. So, if you have ever wondered how a lithograph is made, and want an insight into this fantastic process, possibly with a view to continuing to make lithographs, why not join us for this whistle stop tour.
