Make a Riso Print Poster: Dundee Women's Festival

Dundee Women's Festival 2018

Based in our Print Studio, you’ll learn how to design and print a risograph poster.

Posters have been an important medium for groups to raise issues and viewpoints, express ideas, share music tastes, have fun and make a small work of art. Coming from a tradition that goes back to the very invention of printing and ‘broadsheet ballads’, through early civil rights and women’s movements, to ‘Punk’ and street art, they have been a cheap and easy way to communicate, especially subversively.

Bring along some writings and images you’d like to use to create your poster. You can choose to work on your own or collaborate with others.
