About the Workshop:
This in-person class at Center for Book Arts is taught by instructor Eva Parra.
Come experience all the fun of Riso printing without using a computer! This is an introductory workshop for Riso first timers but it is also a good chance for those who want to explore the built-in features of the Riso machine. We will learn how to make the most of your Riso printing whether you are scanning watercolor, collage, drawings, or your own analog photographs. Students will leave with their own Riso creation!
- Sharpies and copy paper will be provided. Students are welcome to bring other media (such as watercolor, drawing pencils, photographs, etc.)
