Lithography was invented 200 years ago by Senefelder as a means of printing his own manuscripts. He worked out that he could draw on Bavarian limestone and then, after careful processing of the stone, he could print the drawing.


Printmaking Etching

Etching is an artistic discipline by which images can be created on metal using a variety of different processes, including the use of acid, then printed onto specialised printmaking papers. Multiple prints can be made from a plate to form a limited edition of work, each one of which is an ‘original’.


Screenprinting is a method of making an image using stencils. these are attached to a mesh that is stretched over a frame. using a squeegee, ink is pulled through the stencil to create an image. Screenprinting as a process is intrinsic to graphics, advertising and packaging.
