Join us at Wild Press for an introduction to Risograph printing in this dynamic workshop facilitated by our Designer and Print Technician, Lou Rowland. Explore unique possibilities to enrich your artwork and create an edition of 20x A3 prints from your own vibrant design.

Originating in Japan in the 1980’s as a standard office print and photocopier by the Riso Kagaku Corporation; Risograph printing has become increasingly popular with artists, illustrators and graphic designers thanks to its low cost, beautiful quirks and charm. The Riso process blends elements of screen printing and photocopying, using spot colours and stencils to create textured prints with vibrant results. Using soy-based, non-toxic inks and stencils made from banana leaf fibres, Riso is one of the most eco-friendly ways to print.

This studio-based session will introduce you to the Risograph machine and printing process. You will learn how to produce artwork suitable for printmaking: Experimenting with collage and mark-making techniques to explore shape, line, form and texture. We will then support you with printing a 2-colour A3 edition from your final design.

All materials are provided but feel free to bring along any mark-making tools or greyscale printed images you’d like to use. No experience necessary. This workshop is suitable for professionals and beginners alike.

Facilitator Lou Rowland is the Risograph Technician and Designer at Wild Press. She is an illustrator, printmaker and musician with a wealth of experience in the creative arts. Often imbued with bright primary colours, patterns and playful compositions- Lou's work uses abstract imagery to promote positive wellbeing. She graduated from NCAD, Dublin in 2016 with a BA(Hons) of the First Class in Visual Communication; and from Glasgow School of Art with an MDes in Illustration in 2018. Throughout her career, Lou's work has been exhibited in Ireland, Scotland and Japan; and she has facilitated workshops for RISOTTO Studio, Drawing Life Studio and DATH.

General Admission tickets are £40 and include, materials and paper for sketching, printing paper, a Wild Press sample pack, light refreshments and 20x A3 Risograph prints.
