Results of a masterclass in which six makers are challenged to experiment with different printing techniques
With Wobby.Club we are developing an experimental long-term programme entitled To-Riso-or-Not.
"Riso-or-Not" consists of working sessions with a selected group of young illustrators and artists, which changes every year. They are challenged to experiment not only with the fast Risograph but also with other printing techniques that are possible in the graphic workshop. (The Risograph is a low-threshold and popular means of printing. It is faster and cheaper than screen printing and particularly suitable for small and medium-sized print runs).
The aim is to offer different graphic techniques, not so much as a reproduction technique, but more as a way of initiating thinking processes: the workshop as a ‘think-tank’. The mutual synergy, the confrontation with different techniques and materials in all their possible combinations, offers the participants a 'pressure cooker' in which they discover new aspects in their work, share knowledge and develop their talent.
