Learn-to-Riso + Create a tesselated Design

Learn risograph printing + create a repeat pattern


Learn the art of Risograph printing, as a fast, affordable way of producing unique high-quality prints!

In this workshop, you will learn all about how our fabulous Riso printer works - artwork set-up, layers, ink colours and how to use collage or drawing to create your design.

We then will be getting creative using collage and mark-making techniques to make a quick test print to explore and understand layering and the printer's capabilities.

Now it's your turn to have fun creating a tessellated pattern! Learn how to set up a half-drop pattern design and prepare it to be risoprinted.

Each person will leave with tiles to make a pattern sheet with their own design – printed on the day.

 ** Please note that the class is 2 hours to allow everyone time to print, you may finish earlier depending on the time it takes for you to complete your design. There will be plenty of samples to look at for inspo during the wait time  and the Riz volunteers will be on hand to answer any questions.
