This workshop with artist Azim Al Ghussein will explore the makings of a 4-colour print using Tashkeel’s Risograph. Over the course of 2 sessions, participants will learn how the machine works, how colours are layered, and how to turn an artwork into a four layer print. They will develop their image by observing the naturally occurring colors and textures of the outside and inside of a fruit and arranging a visual composition to allow experimentation with color, line, and value.

The RISO machine is a 1980s high-volume printer that was used for commercial printing. It has slowly become a favourite for illustrators, photographers and artists around the world because of its unique range of colours, low cost, as well as multiple options and features.
