Intro to Riso Printing with Awkward Ladies Club

Intro to Riso Printing with Awkward Ladies Club

Presented by Verge Center for the Arts at Verge Center for the Arts

Learn the basics of printing with the Risograph, a machine that looks like a photocopier and works like a screen printer. During this introductory workshop, the class will examine the ins and outs of the machine and discuss what types of projects translate well to riso printing. The class will also cover file prep, paper selection, design for multiple colors, troubleshooting common problems and an overview of online Risograph resources. Each participant will have the opportunity to print an edition of 25 two-color prints and take home a short guide to Risograph printing. Bring a hard copy of an image or photo (designed in black and white or converted to grayscale) up to 8 1/2 x 11in in size. The class will design the second layer of color during class.

Participants will be printing with a Risograph ME9450. Available ink colors are Black, Medium Blue, Fluorescent Pink and Yellow.
