Create ten 11x17” 2-colour risograph prints of a single piece of artwork, and participate in a print exchange with other workshop participants! Participation is free, all supplies are provided and no experience is required. Limited spots are available.

In this 1.5 hour workshop located at Centre[3], participants will learn how to:

  1. Digitally separate the colours of their artwork
  2. Prepare the file for print
  3. Print with risograph in 2 colours

The colours available are:

  • Black
  • Red
  • Yellow
  • Blue

If you would like to follow along as we learn how to digitally separate colours of your artwork, please bring a laptop with Photoshop. However, this is not required to participate, and we can separate the colours and prepare your file for you in advance. 

Please note that if you would like us to prepare your file in advance, artworks must be sent to info@theinc.ca by May 25th at the latest. 

This is a free workshop - reserve your ticket through the link at the bottom of the page!

If you have any questions or you are no longer able to attend, please email info@theinc.ca so that a spot may be opened up for somebody else.
