Riso Broadside Workshop


Come make a numbered print edition of your poetry or artwork! Led by Meg Fransee and Aaron Gonzalez of Floss Editions and Claire Grossman, the workshop will give participants a chance to make their own sets of one- or two-color riso broadsides. Learn the basics of risograph printing, print your work, and trade broadsides with fellow attendees. You’ll receive instructions on how to prepare your text or image once you register. 

This workshop is at capacity. Please join the waiting list.

This year's workshops were organized by Laura Nelson and Noah Ross, a curatorial team assembled by SPT Board Member Melissa Mack.
