Lithography course

During 2019 we have upgraded the lithography workshop at LKV, with the help of Åsmund Haukelidsæter and it is soon ready for regular use. The project is supported by Norske Grafikeres Forbund, Torstein Erbos Gavefond and volunteer work from tenants at LKV.

In February and April we are arranging four courses for professional artists in lithography. The course will run through the techniques of grinding, drawing, etching and pressing stones. The goal is to give the participants an introduction to be able to use the lithography workshop on their own. The course fee is 1200,-.

Course dates:
18.-20. February – fully booked
21.-23. February – fully booked
20.-22. April – fully booked
22.-24. April – fully booked

Contact us at mail@lkv.no to sign up or to let us know if you’re interested in a course at a later date.

New panel saw!

We finally have our new Robland Z300 panel saw in house, and ready mounted. With a weight of 5-600 kg it was challenging to get it inside the wood work shop, but thanks to Trønderfrakt and their amazing truck driver we finished the job with no casualties.

1st of May

LKV was well represented in the workers’ parade on the 1st of May. Carrying banners made on a workshop arranged by Matilde Westavik Gaustad and Anne Helga Henning and puppets arranged by Mishi Foltyn and Per Stian Monsås picturing Erna Solberg, Trine Skei Grande and Kjell Ingolf Ropstad.

After a comradely breakfast at LKV we all headed for the parade and in spite of the rain our chants where well heard.

The slogans of the day where “solidarity with artists”, “yes to artistic freedom of speech”, “payment pays off” among others.
