What is a Lithograph?
It’s a method of printing using a Limestone, crayons and ink. It relies on the fact that oil and water don’t mix. You can watch a video here. (https://youtu.be/S67Qqov0CdU)
Hole Editions is the workshop of Lee Turner. Lee is based in the Cluny building in the Ouseburn, Newcastle. He takes part in the regular Open Days. He collaborates with artists from near and far. Those featured on his website include George Shaw, Yoko Ono and the late Norman Cornish.
“All our work is hand printed and original. We use the most light fast inks available and high quality acid free papers. Editions are carefully curated and documented. Upon completion of projects the stones and/or plates are effaced, thereby preserving the integrity of the edition and ensuring that no further impressions can ever be printed.”

Past, Present & Future of the Royal Watercolour Society
30 January – 3 February 2019
Bankside Gallery, London.
The RWS has a rich and fascinating history and our Archive & Collection comprising artworks and documents associated with its artists since the formation of the Society in 1804, demonstrates this.
For the first time, paintings, letters, photographs and countless other forms of historic ephemera will go on display in an exhibition at Bankside Gallery to raise awareness of the importance of the Royal Watercolour Society to the past, present and future of British art.
Accompanying this will be an auction of works by contemporary members and a secret postcard sale of works by countless influential British artists. All proceeds from sales will facilitate the renovation of the new RWS gallery space at Whitcomb Street, just off Trafalgar Square.
