In this new workshop, learn about the basics of Risograph printing, including process and format, and create your own two-colour Risograph prints.
The workshop will begin with a brief overview of the print process, the resurgence of the Risograph machine within graphic art and design circles, and examples of work from international print artists. You'll then work with cut-outs, collages, drawings and text to create your own artwork. Each participant gets to print one design in two colours x 10 copies.
All materials will be provided, or you may bring your own art making materials (e.g. markers, ink and brushes, pencils, collage materials, etc.). Open to all creative levels.
Facilitated by Melanie Yugo, print artist and co-director of Spins & Needles and Possible Worlds (melanieyugo.com). Melanie has developed programming and led workshops on graphic art, most notably silkscreening, at Algonquin College, Ottawa Art Gallery, National Gallery of Canada, as well as across Canada, and internationally. She has researched and written on the resurgence of the Risograph machine for various publications, curated shows featuring Risograph work through the series Prints & Inks, and has interviewed and visited the studios of dozens of leading Risograph printers around the world.
