Event description

Description

Join us at Custom Lane for a masterclass in hand lettering and risograph printing run by Reset Press and Rachel E Millar. Learn the art of contemporary hand lettering and applying it to a two colour risograph print process.

Rachel will be teaching the basics of drawing letterforms using pencil and paper, taking inspiration from the source materials provided and example pieces.

Your final prints could be a singular letter, a word or a phrase. We’ll then expand upon these letterforms to add 3D elements such as basic shadows, outlines, bevels, convex and concave lettering. After this its all about experimentation: layering these 3D effects, mark making and textures to create a unique piece of lettering art. From this, you will be introduced to the risograph printing process.

Learn this unique and rare print process on the RP3700 model - it uses thermal paper, and exposes an individual master for each colour layer required. Described as a cross between screen printing and a photocopier, the process of risograph printing takes a hand drawn file, which is scanned and then exposed onto a master on the drum to create a duplicate print with variations.

At the end of the session, you will have learnt the process of lettering, risograph printing and two colour 20 A3 prints with your own unique letter or word!

Lunch and refreshments will be catered by Tuk Tuk Indian Street Food with a 10% off discount voucher for future print projects.
