    Urgent Messages: Risograph Poster Workshop

    St. Ed's Risograph Lab will provide the means – a risograph printer and a kit of pre-made graphics commissioned for this event – whereby you can design posters that relay your urgent message. (Note: Participants receive an edition of 20 of their posters to take with them to put out in the world.) Most of these workshops are already full, yes – but there are still a few days available in the beginning of December. Click this link for complete schedule and application.
