In this workshop you will learn the basics of risograph printing – a fun, affordable and colourful printing method – and get your hands dirty with analogue collage and drawing techniques to create and design your festive stationery.
We will begin with an introduction to Risograph printing and an explanation of layers and file set up plus how to use collage to make a Riso stencil. With a bunch of fabulous samples on hand as inspo, students will work together to make a quick set of 2 colour postcards.
Using the same collage method each person will work on their 2-colour A4 poster and then print 6 copies each with the help of our volunteers.
*Please note that only 1 person can print at a time, the printer is pretty quick but there can sometimes be a short wait time. But we like to use this time to answer any questions – at The Rizzeria we love to share our Riso knowledge with you.
What we'll cover:
What is Riso printing?
How layering and opacity works
File set up & using collage
How to book in for future print sessions
Designing and printing your A3 design
What you will get:
All students will leave with the skills to continue on their Risograph journey! Plus a book of cool riso samples, a set postcards, 2 sheets of A3 wrapping paper, gift tags, and a gift box.
What you need to bring:
All materials will be provided, no previous experience or drawing skills are required as we will be working with pre-printed images to create a collage– our volunteers will be on hand to give help.
