VENUE: Joynton Avenue Creative Centre

Risograph printing is a fast, affordable way of producing high-quality prints.

This class is split into 2 parts: first students will first learn the basics of Risograph printing including essential information on colours, layouts and print areas. All students will be shown how the Rizzeria booking system works.

Then we will be getting creative with a mini ‘make your own’ workshop. Using our sample prints you will make notebooks, collages and paper decorations. All materials are provided and the Riz team will be on hand to assist you or answer any questions.

Plus – there will be a pop up shop so you can take home prints and cards made by our talented Rizzeria volunteers.

This workshop is great for anyone who is interested in printing, but is unfamiliar with Risograph printing or is already an established graphic designer or illustrator and wants to be able to come in to The Rizzeria and print for themselves in the future.

Please note: This workshop is at the Rizzeria's new home in Joynton Avenue Creative Centre, not at their previous Marrickville space.

Traffic around this area can be quite busy, so allow yourself plenty of time if driving. There is free parking in the local streets, but JACC is just a few minutes walk from Green Square station and bus stops.

Please note this workshop is on back to back all day please double-check the time before booking. We are happy to transfer dates if you can't make a class - please have a look at availability, then email us at workshop@rizzeria.com.
