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.
