What is riso? How can we use this tool to agitate, educate, and organize? Learn all about the risograph and how you can harness this stencil duplicator’s power for artist publications, posters, prints, and more. Through this one week intensive workshop, we will explore materials and techniques for translating analog artwork into artist multiples. We will go over basics of creating artwork for printing on the riso, including CMYK and spot color separation. The workshop will culminate in a print portfolio, so that each participant will receive a print from each of the other participants, on a theme that we collectively determine on the first day of class. Participants will have the opportunity to maximize the potential of the risograph, limited only by your ideas and the time we have together. Let’s break in WSW’s new risograph, Lt. Uhura with exuberance!
