Do you have a completed short comic, zine, or other material that you’d like to produce for an upcoming comic festival, but you don’t know how or where to make them? This Risograph workshop is the answer! You’ll be trained to operate and publish on Risograph duplicator machines, learn how to optimally paginate, prep and set up your material for printing and, finally, print and assemble your own edition of books, prints or whatever else you have in mind. Patrick Crotty of Peow Studio will lead the workshop, with help from illustrator and Riso printer Natalie Andrewson. You’ll get to hear their insider tips on how to make your Risograph printing experience as efficient and cost-effective as possible. For vibrantly detailed, low-cost small edition printing, Risograph self-publishing is in a class of its own. This workshop includes four hours of supervised printing time (May 3-May 7).
Prerequisite: To register for this workshop students must have completed an art/story project that is ready for printing (or a few very small ones).
Note: Volume printing limits and size parameters will be set in class. Students must provide their own paper. Upon completion of this workshop, attendees will be eligible to sign up for fee-based general RisoLAB printing access.
