What you'll do

I start the activity by showing some examples of prints I have published with artists around Brooklyn. This will get our creative sides all warmed up. I will introduce the Risograph printer, and will show how to change colors in the printer.

Then get ready to create. You will be using markers, pencils, printed matter and created collages and posters one layer at a time. We will focus on one color only for the first part of the experience. Once we print with one color and you see the output of the Risograph printer, we will move on to different colors.

By the end of the activity, you will have created beautiful prints with very vibrant colors and unique textures. They will make great gifts for your friends and family.
Other things to note
Feel free to bring your own printed photos, so you can use them in collages, and mix and match photos with hand-drawn layers. This makes great gifts for friends and family.

I signed up for this class the night before and was totally unprepared to create anything the next day! Had fun anyway with the newspapers and pens/markers in the room and just the general class/creative environment we got to experience.

Cem is great and I had a great time making my first risograph prints! We got to learn a lot about the process, the machine, and the different capabilities. I'm glad I have added Riso to my printing repertoire! No edperience needed to attend this workshop, highly reccomended!

Cem gave a wonderful introduction to Risograph printing, to his process, and made us all feel very welcome and able to explore the materials. I felt very comfortable to experiment and he encouraged me to try new methods, gave me suggestions when I was stuck and offered new ways of thinking about collage and printmaking. I went home with several copies of my new collage print in multiple colors. It was a really fun and satisfying experience!

Cem's risograph class was very organized, informative and easy-spirited. In the condensed workshop, Cem introduced the class to risograph printing, had us execute a collaborative project intended to highlight the breadth of medium, and printed an edition of personal projects for each student all while telling us about each step of the process and the ins and outs of the printer. Cem is easy going and easy to share his skills and passion for Risograph printing.

Thank you Cem for your effort!! It is very interesting to see how Risograph works. Cem helps out a lot and make sure everybody got to try different results. Cem makes it easy for us to understand how Risograph works, even for travellers get in touch with the technique for the first time, like me.

Cem's Risograph printing workshop was a great experience for me. The class is short but it gives enough time to do some hands on projects on the machine. Cem is a very friendly person who gave us some initial explanation about how the machine works and then let us try it out with our individual projects. I left the class very happy to finally have had the opportunity to get a better understanding of this technique and with the hope to find more places where I can explore its seemingly endless possibilities. I would very much recommend this workshop to others interested in experimenting with Risograph.
