Special Risograph Workshop - Friday Night!

riso01On Friday, November 4th Milwaukee Zine Fest will be having special Risograph workshop

What: The medium of Risograph has recently been gaining traction in the art and design world due to its screenprint-like quality. This workshop will give a demo on the process of Riso printing as well as allow participants to have their own cut-and-fold style zine printed! We'll be working off 8.5x11 sheets of paper and participants in the workshop are welcome to come prepared with something to print, or create and collage a zine during the workshop.

Where: 735 E. Center Street, Milwaukee at After School Special - upstairs from Company Brewing

When: Friday before Milwaukee Zine Fest - 7:00pm - 9:00pm
