Riso Holiday Card Workshop

  • Striped Light 107 Bearden Place Knoxville, TN, 37917 United States (map)

Unique Gifts, Cards for Your Favorite People or Shameless Self Promotion, Tis the Season!

The holidays are approaching and you want to send out something unique and handmade. Or maybe there’s a stack of flat or folded cards you’ve been meaning to make for an upcoming pet’s birthday or promotional mailer for your new artisanal toothbrush business. Man, have we got the workshop for you! Welcome to the wonderful picto-friendly world of the Riso. The Risograph is a digital duplicator with an aesthetic and mechanical process similar to screenprint. Draw, collage and arrange text and image by hand or digitally, then this machine allows for quick production of a stack of one, two or three color prints.

This class gets you familiarized with our Risograph machines in combination with hand layout and registration techniques to make mailers, folded and flat cards. Completing this class gets you certified to use our Riso machines during open shop hours every Thursday through Sunday. 

Please bring images and text the day of the workshop (if there is a specific design you have in mind). Supplemental materials will be available for those that would like to experiment. All paper for cards and additional supplies will be provided. The cost of this workshop is $50. Zip over to our Classes page to register.
