1-Day Workshop: Workhorse Press – Riso Intro


Workhorse Press is a Risograph based design & print studio based in Edinburgh, setup in 2010 by illustrator Dominic Kesterton & designer Orlando Lloyd.

Working with a variety of cultural organisations and clients to product highly finished printed outcomes, the studio’s practice revolves around combining skills of Design, Illustration & Risograph printing together to create bold and unique graphic work.

The studio also offers it’s Risograph printing services to individuals, organisations and collaborative projects.

“Our workshop will be collaborative, unpredictable and fun. Participants will be guided through the Risograph process to produce improvised, colourful prints. Printing both individual and overlapping artworks with other participants, the outcome will be a body of printed matter (that participants will take away with them) that is completely exclusive to the combination of people in attendance on the day! All work will be brought together to create a Risograph exhibition within the space.”
