Printmaking Workshop: Make your own Riso Postcards
with Rachel of Taxonomy Press

Saturday, June 18th
from 11am - 2pm

Entry Level Class
No experience necessary, however you must be 14 or older

Learn about Risograph printing and make a handful of colorful unique postcards. They're perfect for gifting, mailing, or keeping for yourself!

During this 3 hour printing workshop we'll be making postcards using a Risograph printer. We'll learn about the basics of this unique, vibrant print process. You'll get a chance to collage and or draw your own postcards then print them up on the Risograph in the color of your choice.

Collage materials, stencils and basic drawing supplies will be provided as well as a choice of pre-made card templates. No special skills or supplies are needed, but students are invited to bring their favorite dark drawing tools and or some collaging supplies if they'd like.

Everyone will take home 25 copies of their cards, a packet of risograph goodies including print samples, and a card from each of your classmates.

Aprons will be provided, but please wear clothes that you don’t mind getting a little bit dirty. Riso ink will stain your clothing!

 

COVID-19 POLICY - We are asking all workshop participants to be fully vaccinated or provide a negative test result from within three days prior to the class and to accept all requests of both POST and the instructor concerning mask wearing.

 About the instructor:

Rachel Hays is a printer and illustrator who first got interested in risograph printing through her background in DIY publishing zines and comics. She was attracted to the bright colors and handmade feel of risoprinting. After several years of printing on other people's machines she bought her own risograph with an artist's grant then went on to find her second risograph in a junkyard the same month. Since 2019 she has been running risograph micro press Taxonomy Press printing for artists, writers, poets, and activists as well as leading workshops and printing a quarterly newspaper. In 2021 she moved her press to Detroit. She loves risograph printing because its accessible, non toxic and you never quite know how the vibrant inks will come together.
