GR2 Workshop: July 29th 1-6pm: Risograph Printing Workshop II

Announcing Risograph Printing Workshop II with Never Press. If you don’t know what Risograph is, here’s your chance. The fine folks at Never Press will bring their Risograph machine for you to try. Basically Risograph looks like a photocopier, but it’s not. It’s more akin to a silkscreen press since it runs like a printing press – complete with plate and ink (not toner). They will change the inks so you can layer multiple colors as well. Suggested donations of $3, but if you want to print more, you can do that too. July 29th 1-6pm, 2012 at Giant Robot 2 2062 Sawtelle Blvd, LA, CA 90025   Here are photos from the first Risograph Workshop.

I saw some of the folks munching down. Out in the patio was James Chong and Jesse Fillingham. The next day featured Mandoline Grill, Mari Inukai and Albert Reyes! Lomo Arigato! This pic rocks.
