Ever wanted to have a go at creating your own prints?
Join Blaze Arts and Dizzy Ink for a free online Risograph Printing workshop on Wednesday 10th March at 5-7pm
Risograph or, Riso for short, is a stencil duplicator. Think of it as a cross between screen printing and photocopying. The Riso prints one colour at a time in bright, vibrant colours. It is ideal for posters, graphic prints, zines, comics, and other graphic arts.
In this workshop you will print in 2 colours. You can make something in preparation or make something within the session once you see what other people are printing.
You will just need to turn up with 1 or 2 pieces of artwork or ideas that you want to work on.
You can have them on a creative suite or they can be hand drawn things. Craig from Dizzy Ink will go through each person’s artwork to help you out with formatting it for the Risograph printing process.
There are 10 spaces available. This workshop is for Young people aged 16-25 who have an interest in printing.
Blaze’s vision is to see a more diverse art sector where more underrepresented young people have jobs in the arts. We are particularly interested in supporting people often marginalised from the arts including: working class people, disabled people, People of South, East and South East Asian heritage, People of African or Caribbean heritage, Irish Traveller heritage and Latinx heritage.
This workshop will run on Zoom. You will be sent a zoom link upon signing up.
