    Future Network: Learn how to print with a Risograph Printer

    December 11, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm


    As a part of our Future Network program, we are excited to host a Risograph Printing workshop with artist Amanda Rigby. This workshop will be an opportunity for artists and creatives to learn new techniques and make connections with other creatives across the city. 

    A Risograph printer looks like a standard photocopier, however, it works like a screenprinter. It uses vibrant colours and stencilling to create DIY style prints, often used for posters and zines. Risograph printers are traditionally used for high-volume printing, but over the years artists have also used them to create unique artworks!

    Amanda will deliver a 3-hour Risograph workshop, where you will learn how to use the Risograph printer by developing your own print designs. This could be your own artwork, a poster or the beginnings of a zine. With the support of Amanda, participants will learn what the Risograph printer is, how to use it and different printing techniques. Participants will develop their own artworks via mark making, collage, pattern making, placement and design. 

    During the workshop attendees will work together and make their own pieces. 

    People at all skill levels are welcome. Some small lunch snacks and refreshments will be provided, but please feel free to bring your own lunch. 

    If you have any questions or queries, then please feel free to get in touch at sarah@metalculture.com or on 01733 893077 

    Book your tickets here.

    About Amanda Rigby 

    Amanda Rigby is an artist, designer and illustrator. She works predominantly in pen and spray paint, exploring bodies, creatures, growth, emergence and emotional states. Her work touches on the difference between our calm, desensitised exterior and the world of our inner thoughts. Particularly physical sensations, blood rushing in response to touch and fleeting thoughts beneath everyday moments. 

    Our Access 

    The garden and ground floor are all on one level, with automatic doors to enter the lobby. The doors are wide enough for an electric wheelchair. In the lobby there are a series of doorways. 

    The doorway on the right leads to the mainspace where the workshop will take place, which is wide enough for an electric wheelchair. The mainspace has an induction hearing loop that can work by linking up to a set of microphones. 

    At the back of the mainspace is a doorway that leads to our workshop space, this is where the risographprinter is, which can also be accessed through the double doors outside at the far end of the building. A wheelchair ramp is available for use if entering through the outside double doors. 

    Back in the lobby, the doorway directly ahead of you is to a gender neutral and wheelchair accessible bathroom. The bathroom has handrails and assistance chords. The door on the left leads to the reading room, which is wide enough for a manual wheelchair. 

    All our bathrooms are gender neutral. If you have any specific questions or queries access please get in touch.
