EXPRESS YOUR CREATIVITY ON STONE
In our lithographic workshop, beginners and advanced lithographers can get to create their own lithos. The Dutch Museum of Lithography also regularly collaborates with Dutch and international artists: lithography is very much in demand for making graphics in small circulation.
Our lithographic workshop is also used for creative projects, printing demonstrations and workshops stoneprinting. During one of our workshops, you can get to learn more about drawing on stone and the stoneprinting technique at entry level.

Are you an artist and would you like to have a circulation printed of your own design ?
- Printing monochrome and in colours is possible.
- For a bigger circulation we have two authentic speedpresses at out disposal!
- With all our projects we work together with Gertjan Forrer, a specialist in lithographic productions and an experienced masterprinter.
The masterprinter can advise and support you in all parts of the creative process: grinding the stone, etching, colouring, making the right paper choice up till the printing of the final litho.
Master of lithography
Gertjan Forrer is regarded as the last master stoneprinter in the Netherlands.
He has acquired expertise during five decades as a printer for artists in various graphic studios and printing firms. This knowledge and expertise is of vital importance for the preservation of this graphic craftsmanship.
“It is great to get the freedom and the trust to work under the guidance of masterprinters for such a special technique as lithography. As a creative, it brings you in the position to go beyond the trodden paths and work out for yourself where the key principles of your work lie.”
