Art of the Risograph In-Person (Adults and Ages 16+)

What is a Risograph?

Risograph printing is a technique best described as a ‘digital screen
printing’. The process is much like screen printing, but with the convenience
of an office copier. It’s known for its vivid colors and its specific textures.
These machines deliver ‘perfect imperfections’ and provide a cheap and
easy method for reproducing work at large quantities, like posters,
prints and zines.

This four-day, in person, workshop focuses on the basic techniques for
risograph printing. Emphasis is placed on printing multiple color layers
and registration. Participants can use digital or hand drawn elements
or a combination of both, to create a large edition one-page artist zine,
where personal content will be explored.  This workshop is open to
both beginner and advanced artists.

Instructor: Randel Plowman
Assistant Student Instructor: Sydney Bryan 

Schedule: June 13-16 in the Printmaking Studio - FA 102

Workshop meets live on NKU’s campus Monday through
Thursday from 6-8pm est. This workshop is for adults ages 16 and up.
Space is limited to 10 participants.
