Come and learn about the unique printing process using the Risograph, and make an art zine to share with your friends! Risograph printing is a method of printmaking that can be thought of as digital screen printing. It's known for a unique texture and the vivid use of color not achieved by other kinds of printers. Local Risograph artist Shannon Kidd is thrilled to offer an introductory course just for ages 13-17, covering Risograph printing basics and a quick history!

Shannon will guide participants in learning to use the machine, and then class time will focus on making zines to tell stories and build community. Maybe you want to talk about your favorite recipe, make a book of spells, or teach someone how to sew a vest; whatever story you want to tell is fair game! In class we will practice making marks and sharing the ideas that we print on the Riso. Everyone will get to take a stack of zines home to share with their friends and community! Let's Print!

All course materials and supplies, including paper, ink, and masters, are provided with the materials fee.

After registration, course details are available via the Northwind Art School learning portal. Learn more

Shannon Kidd is a design educator and Riso tech who has been working with finicky machines for almost a decade. Their practice is informed by community and storytelling, and the usage of the Riso helps bring that work to life with juicy colors. When not illustrating and printing flyers on the Riso, Shannon can be found zipping around the peninsula on their bike or rooting around in the dirt in search of some fresh inspiration.
