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.”
