Come and explore Risograph printing (a colourful photocopy process that is similar to screen printing) and add to a collective publication, which will be printed at the end of the workshops.

These playful sessions (running 19, 20 & 21 February), and programmed on occasion of the RCA: Print MA Interim Show at our Lake Gallery, will involve colour mixing, printing and making stamps, easy bookbinding and learning about the Riso machine. Each day we will add to the pages displayed on the workshop wall and on the final day we will print and bind our publications to take away.

There will be plenty of room for experimentation, exploration and for young and older children to make their mark.


19 Feb: Print Processes

20 Feb: Colour Lab mixing colours, light, materials

21 Feb: Binding and Production

The morning sessions (10am-12pm) are designed for Under Fives, while the afternoon sessions (1-3pm) are for 6-11 yrs.

These workshops have a capacity of 12 children at any one time, please arrive on time to avoid disappointment. Though they are tailored to specific age groups, we accommodate families with mixed ages and adapt the activities if required. Please note, children must be accompanied by an adult willing to join in!


Joanna Brinton works primarily with print and sculpture and many of her projects have a socially engaged component. Joanna is the founder of Good Studio, which houses an open-access Risograph printer for the production of print and publications as a starting point for conversation and exchange. Recent projects have involved local historians, council workers, flag makers, horticulturalists and dentists. The objects and prints that result from research and collaboration with these local experts act as props and prompts in the gallery and public realm.

Current projects and publications include So Familiar… a risograph publication and exhibition at Battersea Archives for Pump House Gallery, Good Hope Works, a GOSH Arts commission for the exterior of Great Ormond Street Hospital, Parakeet Pavilion, a temporary structure for Kelly Avenue Park, Peckham and Holzhausen, National Trust Saltram, Devon.
