Polyester plate lithography Workshop

Lithography on polyester, lithopolyester or “pronto plate lithography” is a less toxic printmaking technique that, unlike traditional lithography, does not require the use of a stone and is printed with an intaglio press.

Led by Marta di Bitetti

The workshop is designed for visual artists, art teachers, printmakers, designers, photographers, artisans and anyone interested in these printmaking techniques.

Lithography on polyester, Litopolyester or Pronto Plate is a less toxic printmaking technique that, unlike traditional lithography, does not require the use of stone or a lithographic press. A polyester plate is used to prepare the matrix and is printed with an intaglio press. This polyester plate can be worked on directly with pens or markers, which makes it a very attractive technique for artists and illustrators seeking to multiply their images on paper.

In the case of photolithography on polyester we can transfer a photograph to the matrix to achieve very attractive results by analog means, combining this option with direct drawing on the plate. These variants are very interesting for those who are venturing into hybrid photography and the incorporation of photographic processes in their graphic productions.
