In Lithography, Ingrid attended courses of Gösta Andersson in his Lithographic Workshop, by Kronhusbodarna in Gothenburg, She have done almost all lithographs in workshop of Gösta Andersson, Kronhusbodarna later in Pixbo after Gösta Andersson moved his workshop there, after Gösta Andersson stopped with his business Ingrid performed lithographs at Lithographic association Vulcanön Tidaholm.

Gösta Andersson on Lithography:
“In my work with Lithograph signed and I paint on a model which is available as a vision somewhere inside the head. The printing is done entirely by hand in an old printing press made over sometime at the turn of the century. As a rule, I press some thirty basic images, and by replacing paper and ink I receive a lot of variety in a small edition. Some pressure disappears while working in the trash, and from the remaining discerned those who can represent the original thought. These stamped, numbered, goods declared and signed. The usual practice of the photographic technique reproduce an already before printing completed image, or to work manually on the plate or film and then let the machine take care of the printing is not in my view lithography without offset. As opposed to my idea of what Lithography is the aim of such reproductive technology at minimal variation. With its help, accomplished three -fyrahundra or a thousand perfect machine printed images that purports to be a lithographed or even original lithographs Only the original direct-printing method from the stone by hand pressure to give the picture its special quality and charm / GÖSTA ANDERSON


Gypsumcasting technique (reinforced gypsum), Ingrid attended a private course held in Gothenburg. This is a very exciting technology, in this case, we had a woman model.


The technology PaperLithography “snatched” Ingrid up somewhere along the way, which is a very interesting technique which unfortunately not used very much in Sweden, their tasks are to compared with traditional lithography on the “right way” However, there is no heavy lifting of stones, etc. “The stones are replaced” with “Paper” designed for this technology, when Ingrid began with technology PaperLithography she was at the time buying from abroad, Ingrid bought “paper” from the United States.
