Riso Printing

Riso Printing Workshop!


Introduction- Printing with 2 Colours

In this introduction course you will create your own series of postcards while learning the basics of the RISO printing at our studio!

There are many ways of creating cool works with the RISO - but to simplify the process we are starting with analog (hand-drawn) techniques that we can then scan into the machine.

What is a RISO?
It’s short for Risograph Digital Duplicator, a digital screen printing technique that originates in Japan. We create a ‘digital’ stamp on individual colours (which are incredibly vibrant!) and together they create a colorful image.

Why is RISO interesting?
Any type of printing technique is like a puzzle - you need to think about what you are doing and how. The results are always surprising!

Specifically, the RISO, even though being a digital machine, does not guarantee perfection, which makes each piece unique. 

What will you learn during this weekend?

You will learn the basics of this cool printing method, tips & tricks for composition as well as working in 2 layers with transparencies. You’ll discover and experiment with this imperfect, perfect machine.
