Our Spring 2019 RisoLAB courses are open for enrollment! To sign up check the link in our bio. RisoLAB faculty member Panayiotis Terzis @_pppannn_ teaches our Tuesday night Zine and Small Publishing class. This course will give you a solid foundation in preparing images for the Risograph process in the context of making zines and books in a variety of formats and bindings. Pan is an artist, printer and publisher who has worked with printmaking for over a decade and has been publishing editions using the #Riso process since 2010. From a recent feature about Pan on @booooooom : “My work starts with drawing and painting, but then passes through many stages of transformation as it passes from analog to digital to analog form and sometimes back again, emerging as a Riso zine or print, screenprint on fabric or drawing or painting to be worked back into. Working within the limitations of Risograph printing and printmaking gives me a structure to work against, and the technologies employed become collaborators, transforming my work in ways that help me resolve and reflect the tension that I feel exists between humans and their tools. Whether working in the studio on my own work or designing imagery for a commercial client, my focus remains the same — locate and channel the ghost in the machine, whether it lurks in the human psyche or my external hard drive.” To see more if his work go to panterzis.com. Sign up today! Limited spots remaining.
