Learn the ins-and-outs of the Risograph, a photocopier that creates a stencil for each layer, printing a single color at a time. Inks are soy-based and semi-opaque, so they layer and create overlays. In this class you’ll create image layers by hand, and edition print a 2-4 color poster. Come prepared with sketches, drawings, photographs, and collage materials no larger than 10” x 16” on paper or clear acetate.
Materials to Bring: Illustration divided in to 2-4 separations, all grayscale. Can be computer or hand-drawn. Max image size 10” x 16”. Can be hand drawn, collage, photo-based, or a mixture.
