Risograph Workshop: Printmaking and Protest

Public Event Series

  • 7 October 2023
  • PageMasters

There are two time slots for this event. One at 10am and one at 1.30pm.

This event is part of Printmaking for Change: Past and Present – the Paul Mellon Centre's new public events programme.

This workshop will introduce you to risograph printing – a technique often described as a cross between screen printing and photocopying, which uses spot colours and stencils to create multiple prints. Taking place at PageMasters in Lewisham, the session will begin with an introduction to risograph and tour of the studio. This will be followed by an exploration of PageMasters’ archive of protest prints and the opportunity to create your own two-colour A4 print to take home.

This programme is an introduction to the subject and is open to all.

Talks and workshops will take place at the Paul Mellon Centre, the British Museum, PageMasters and the Royal College of Physicians.

Talks at the Paul Mellon Centre will be streamed live via Zoom. Off-site workshops will be in person only.

This session has limited space and will require confirmation of attendance 24 hours prior to the event.

Registration via Eventbrite is required and opens 8 September.
