Risograph Inductions


A Risograph is a compact stencil based duplicator and photocopying machine which is economically and environmental friendly form of bulk printing. The machines we have are single colour, which will allow you to print your work one colour at a time. If you would like to print your own zines or other printed works in bulk, then this is the most fun, cost and time effective way to do it.

You will be inducted on how to use our studio riso + other self-publishing equipment, which you can then later utilise to create your very own projects. You will also be shown various examples of riso printed matter, as well as a chance to create and do a print run of 10 one colour A6 zines or A4 posters.

Once you are feeling more confident and want to create more things, you can book yourself a 1 hr/2 hr slots on the slot sheets for open access dates.
