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 group poster.   

Materials to Bring: Feel free to bring sketches, drawings, photographs, or collage imagery no larger than 10” x 16” on paper or clear acetate (spot imagery smaller than 10” x 16” will work as well).
