Mokulito is an alternative lithographic technique, where the printing surface is made of plywood instead of the traditional smooth limestone block. Lithograph processes build on the way that oily materials and acidic, watery liquids do not mix.

Wooden plates are easier to obtain and prepare than stone, though they are more delicate and the image changes as you make each additional print. You have the option to cut into the plates as well as drawing onto the surface, thereby adding a relief printed element to Mokulito artworks. Contrasting lines and textures are built up, creating very atmospheric imagery.

Once the design is drawn, the plate is sealed with gum arabic and needs to be left at least overnight before printing. Over two Sundays artist Kasia Parker will teach you the principles of this exciting technique, which is relatively new in the UK. You’ll prepare two wooden plates, experiment with mark making and try various printing methods using our Rochat etching press. All materials needed are included in the workshop price.

Invented by professor Seishi Ozaku in the 1970s ‘mokulito’ means wood lithography in Japanese. It was further developed by Polish lithography professor Josef Budka and his daughter, printmaker Ewa Budka.

Open access sessions are available for people who have taken a printing course with us or have experience working with the equipment in our studio.
