Weekend workshop with Jess Bugler
November 14th and 15th, 2020
10am – 4pm
Risograph is a method of printing using a stencil printer machine which originates in Japan. It lies between screen printing and photocopying – but with a unique aesthetic.
It is popular with artists and designers across Europe, allowing them to work with digital and non-digital imagery to make dramatic and colourful images.
In this two day workshop, Print Artist Jess Bugler will introduce the principles of Risograph printing, and some experimental approaches to the process, allowing particpants to create a series of dynamic multi-colour prints and zines.
Riso inks are liquid and not coated or fully opaque. There are a range of different effects and colours that can be obtained by overlaying individual colours and varying the paper stock. This provides a handmade aesthetic, and in principle means each print is a unique piece.
