Risography 102 reinforces the skills introduced in Riso 101. Each student will bring their own project to set-up and print during the workshop.
Best practices for imposition or layout for zines and publications will be reviewed as well as tips for color separation and digital file set-up. Smart file set up is step #1 to ensure smooth and efficient printing!
Then, through creating a small run of prints during the workshop, students will get a refresher on how to make masters from digital files, how to troubleshoot paper jams and other typical print errors, and how to replenish ink and masters.
Lastly, students will have the opportunity to use our guillotines to trim their prints.
Prerequisite: Risography 101
Student Material List: 2-3 color project
Students should come ready with a 2-3 color project–either a single-sided print to be completed in the workshop or a longer project to be finished during open studio. While PDF files are great, students are welcome to bring anything from text typed in Microsoft Word to photocopies.
We are located in the West Town neighborhood at 1821 W. Hubbard, Suite 302. You may park in the parking lot for our building, but not the one next door. You will need to use the intercom at the front door to enter the building. We're on the 3rd floor.
