About the Workshop:

Come experience all the fun of Riso printing without computers involved! This is an introductory workshop for Riso first timers but also a good chance for those who might have overlooked 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 analog photographs. We will try to understand the language or Riso: Grayscale! and each student will take home an edition of 10 lettersize two-color print.

This workshop is part 2 of a series of Riso workshops, and will be focused on using the machine. An introduction to the history of Riso printing will be provided in the previous “Hands On Riso” workshop. Participation in this workshop is recommended in order to participate in further workshops.

Required Materials:

Sharpies and copy paper will be provided. Students are welcome to bring other media (such as watercolor, drawing pencils, photographs, etc.)
