Event description
Risograph printing at DIY Print Collective's current space at Turf, Croydon.

About this event

Please book a spot via this Eventbrite if you'd like to do some risograph printing at our open access day on Saturday 4th December, 12-5pm.

If you are printing a zine or anything that requires 3 or more masters, please send us an email after registering so we can check timings and let you know when to come to have enough time to print. If your work will take especially long, we may recommend you book a private printing session instead.

Each ticket is for 1 individual or 1 small group of 2-3 people working together on a print.

** Important information such as deposit refund policy + cash you must bring on the day is detailed below in 'Key Info' **

Open access sessions are for anyone with experience of riso printing. If you'd like to learn to use riso, please register instead for one of our induction sessions.

If you'd just like to come along and watch and/or hang out without printing then you can just show up on the day. Please just be aware we have limited space and want to allow social distancing where possible, so may ask you to wait or come back later if we're especially busy.

If registering, it is important that you read the following:

Key Info

- This session is open to anyone who has printed with riso before, whether you've been inducted with us or elsewhere.

- There will be a facilitator there to help you set up your files, troubleshoot issues with the machines and answer any questions throughout the session.

- The session costs £15 per individual or small group. You will have paid £5 deposit when registering, so please bring £10 cash on the day.

- The fee pays for the facilitator's time, helps us make a contribution to artist-run space Turf (where our studio is located), and covers you for printing a 1 colour risograph print.

- If you want to use more than 1 colour in your print, you should bring extra cash (£3-6 per A4 master, £5-10 per A3 master, priced on a sliding scale of what you can afford).

- You can split the base cost with up to 2 people if you're working on something together. However, if your friend wants to come and print something of their own, they should register and pay separately.

- You should also bring your own paper, or some change to buy sheets from us (1-2p per sheet). Be aware though that we have limited stock and so to avoid disappointment, we recommend bringing your own. There is also WH Smiths or The Works nearby the studio.

- We have a regular A4 and A3 printer so you can print your originals (i.e. the design you'd then like to riso print). Bring your laptop or files on a USB. We also have pens and collage materials so you can experiment on the day, too.

Cancellations

If you need to cancel your registration, please cancel your place . Eventbrite's 80p fee is non-refundable, but we may refund your £5 deposit if you have given us enough notice (~48 hours) to advertise the spare place to someone else.

Please do your utmost to attend the session and make sure you cancel your place. We’re a small community organisation and this helps us and other users.

Location & Access

Our current studio is located at Croydon Arts Store (directly above Turf) in the Whitgift Centre.

The address is 46-47 Trinity Court, Whitgift Centre, Croydon CR01UQ

If you enter the Whitgift Centre from Wellesley Road, near bus stops WL and WM you'll be on the ground floor and will see Turf on your right. You can either enter Turf and ask someone at the desk to direct you upstairs to find us, or you can take the escalator up one floor and come into Croydon Arts Store (CAS) where you'll find us in the studio to your right, at the back.

Our space is wheelchair accesible. If you have other access requiments or questions, please email us dsflprintcollective@gmail.com

Good to Know

Both of our machines (A4 and A3 riso printers) are secondhand and like all Risos, they act up sometimes. We'll do our best to mitigate any issues but there can be hiccups on the day. Our A3 printer currently has a very specific issue and is especially unrealiable but facilitators do have a way of getting it to work, it just requires an extra large dose of patience.

COVID

We prefer it if people wear masks although recognise some people are exempt. Please wear a mask if you’re able.

We adhere to the general government restrictions, isolating if you have symptoms or have contact with someone who has symptoms or tests positive.

In terms of preventing transmission at workshops, we keep sessions small for all our inductions and open access sessions. We also encourage people to social distance at the sessions, and/or try to stagger sessions if possible on the day.

Any other questions?

Please email us: dsflprintcollective@gmail.com

Be aware that administrative work for Print Collective is done voluntarily in our spare time so we may not reply immediately.

We look forward to printing with you!
