Time Out Says

In recent years, there’s been a huge resurgence of interest in 1980s-style risograph printing, a speedy way to screenprint layers of paint-like ink in order to create vibrant designs for posters, comics and illustrations. In 2011, designer Gonzalo Guerrero opened a riso studio in his apartment to share the undersung craft. “Riso really allows you to dissociate and focus in,” says Guerrero. “Every person comes into the studio for a different reason, but everyone gains a sense of inspiration after working on a project from beginning to end. Maybe it even helps them feel less stuck in other parts of their lives.” To get your feet wet, opt for the three-hour intro workshop, which provides a personal one-on-one session with Guerrero. After that, you’ll be ready to book studio time to hash out your own designs. The best part? The space is a sanctuary from NYC crowds—no more than five people are allowed in at any one time.
