Layering with Color: A Riso Basics Workshop

Natalie will be teaching how to layer color for the Riso, share tips and tricks to make Riso printing more accurate and fun, and share how she likes to set up files for Riso printing.

This workshop is limited to 10 people and it’ll take place in Natalie's Atwater Village studio in Los Angeles on December 2nd, 2022 from 6:30pm-9:30pm. This will be an in person only event and masks are required.

Attendees will be contacted a few days before the workshop and asked to provide a simple line art file. Starting at 6:30pm Natalie will demo one of the prints from her library so attendees can see how exactly she layers her colors on the Riso, then attendees will make one big print all together with the provided line art so attendees can see how different values look on a variety of different styles of mark making. Natalie will decide with attendees what colors to use for the collaboration print, and then print it right there for everyone to take home! Lots of time for Q+A and extra fun on the Riso baked into this schedule as well.

This workshop includes some takeaway Riso prints: My Fave Riso Flavors color chart print in all 8 color drums Natalie has in the studio, The Cool Cats Color Chart in orange, blue and yellow, and a sheet/PDF of best riso practices you can take home and use later!

Natalie will be teaching and Riso extraordinaire Printed Pony (who's name is Natalie Center but we'll keep it Printed Pony here for clarity's sake! <3) will also be in the studio helping answer any questions and concerns that may arise. Printed Pony will also be contacting you about files and logistics for the workshop.

This is a great workshop for artists and creators who are interested in understanding how the Riso works and how Natalie layers her files specifically for Riso to make her digital work look traditional.

Class is $150 which includes the price of paper and consumables, Riso printed extras, and payment for Printed Pony's time and expertise.
