About the Workshop:

This in-person class at Center for Book Arts is taught by instructor Eva Parra.

Welcome to our Riso workshop for photography! In this fast-paced and immersive workshop, you will have the opportunity to learn about the exciting possibilities of Riso printing and how it can be used to enhance your photographic work.

Through a series of hands-on exercises and projects, we will cover the core concepts and skills needed to create striking and unique photographic prints using the Riso printing process. In just 2 sessions, you will gain a comprehensive understanding of how Riso printing works and how it can be applied to photography.

By the end of the workshop, you’ll have gained a wealth of skills and knowledge that can be applied to your own photographic work. You’ll have created a series of prints that showcase the full potential of Riso printing, and you’ll have a deeper understanding of how to integrate this unique printing process into your own creative practice.

Required Materials:

  • A laptop with photo editing software installed (such as Photoshop)
  • Your own photographic images (digital or scanned)

All other materials will be provided by CBA.
