*ADVANCED* 4 Color Photo Process for Riso Workshop!

About the Workshop:

Learn how to turn full color images into four color riso prints!

In this workshop we will explore the history of four color printing and use of halftones in printmaking. We will walk through the process of setting up a full color image to print on the riso as a four color CMYK process print. The process of setting up these kinds of files can be confusing and frustrating, but we will have fun learning the how and why of four color printing. In the end you’ll walk away with a gorgeous print edition, and a step by step guide to reference for future four color prints. We will be making an edition of four color prints, using the combination of fluorescent pink, aqua, yellow and black.
