RISO Printing Workshop at Tashkeel

On Wednesday, the 31st of August, 2022, Diego Mendoza will lead a 3-hour RISO Printing workshop at Tashkeel. The workshop is open to ages 15+, welcoming people with any level of experience, and will last from 5pm until 8pm. 

In this RISO Printing for Beginners workshop, the participants will learn to RISO print on the Japanese machine. They will find out the basics of printing a two-colour RISO print, from creating the print to layering and colour choices, explore both collage and drawing using various media, making an image to be transferred into an edition of RISO prints.

Nowadays, risograph printing is popular with artists, designers and illustrators around the world for its vibrant qualities that convey some of the finest colours and textures found in print. Creative people at the forefront of the riso printing industry continue to surprise risograph lovers with unexpected colour combinations and a sense of depth that can only be achieved using screen printing techniques.

The Risograph 007 was first released to the market in 1984 by the Japanese corporation Riso Kagaku. In a sense, the technology was at the intersection of analog and digital. Riso printers were designed to offer a fast and cheap way to produce print runs from 50 to 5,000 copies. Basic models only print one colour at a time. Patterns are printed in separate layers of colour that are run through automatically generated stencils and wrapped around ink-filled drum cylinders.

Tashkeel’s Education and Outreach Coordinator, Diego Mendoza is originally from Mexico. He has a BFA in Painting and Printmaking and a Masters in Arts & Educational Leadership. He has worked in the cultural and private education sectors of Qatar, Indonesia, UAE, Tanzania and Mexico.

The RISO Printing for Beginners workshop will be held at Tashkeel Nad Al Sheba. The fee is AED 285.71 (+VAT) per person.
