We will start the morning session at the digital lab where we will hear Travis's talk about his practice and the Risograph technology while exploring samples of prints and engaged in a discussion.
The afternoon will take place at Josh Dannin’s studio in Goffstown where we will produce an edition of our images on his Risograph machine.
The workshop is very unique and we want to make sure as many students as we can fit at Josh’s studio to take advantage of it. If you know that you can’t make it on Friday, make sure to notify me so we could offer this opportunity to other interested students.
