I attended a two-session Risograph Printing Workshop by Knuckles & Notch as part of the library’s annual youth arts festival, PRESSPLAY. I lucked out snagging a seat because of a last-minute cancellation. It had been a while since I last drew anything, and wow did it take effort to tamp down on the cursing that was raging in my head at how tedious drawing is.
Anyway, I drew some mermaids.
This was the machine in action – the printing was incredibly fast! It worked by scanning in the first layer using the photocopying tray at the top of the machine. The machine creates a template on the surface of the teal drum (which gets discarded into a tray inside the machine after).
