What you’ll do
Grab the chance to create your very own 2 colour riso-printed fanzine at Hato this summer. Got a favourite celeb, artist, animal or quinoa brand you’d like to dedicate a zine to? Now’s the time to let your passions be known! From Beyonce to Japanese post-punk singer Tomoko Kawase; a bowl of avocados or the smell of freshly made coffee. Every passion is a welcome addition.
Our workshop introduces the basics of risograph printing and zine making to all its attendees; no artistic skills, experience or technical expertise is necessary. The only key things are a good enthusiasm and willingness to get involved!
Some materials will be provided, but do bring along any specific materials you’d like to incorporate into your zine – sketches, text, photographs, magazine or newspaper clippings (max A5 size) – no computer needed.
We’ll be kicking off the workshop with a fun warm-up exercise. A chance for each participant to introduce, explain and serenade the person/object/foodstuff they’ll be crushing over for the rest of the day. Extra points for the weird and the wacky.
Then things will get hands-on! Cutting, splicing, sticking and twisting. Piecing together the various elements of your zine and having it riso printed in-house. To finish, you’ll trim, bind and dine your zine - et voilà - 10 copies of your 16 page A6 zine read to take home or post to your unrequited love! Oh and by the way for lunch we’ll all be cooking and eating together like we always do here at Hato.
All materials are provided.
Please feel free to bring along your own artworking materials (but please make sure they are all A5 or smaller greyscale print outs, no USB please as we are unable to print them out here in the studio). You can refer to our FAQ page for more information.
