Join our Print Lab Manager Cynthia Navarro in learning the basic mechanics how the risograph printer works. We will delve into the history and uses of this specialty analog/digital stencil-based printmaking device, covering: color drums, masters, ink, how the stencil is made, and printing using the scanner bed vs. network printing.

Each participant will print their own unique broadsheet of workshop notes to take home and use as a reference for future printing.

This workshop serves as a certification session for WCCW Workspace Members to gain access to the print lab equipment, as well as an informative skill share for all who are interested in the mysterious workings of this special machine.

Cynthia Navarro is a printmaker who hails from a small desert town in Southern California. In 2006, she ventured off to UC Santa Cruz to study Fine Arts. She concentrated in tree hugging and printmaking and fell in love with the idea of multiples. After Santa Cruz, she lived the East Bay working as a freelance graphic designer and illustrator and collaborated with her wonderful friends in creating Tiny Splendor, an art collective and small risograph publisher running out of Berkeley and Los Angeles, California, which she helps run. Tiny Splendor was founded on the idea of finding a way to share our friends’ artwork, while satisfying our obsession with and love of ink on paper. Cynthia can help you with your print needs at the WCCW!
