Event Overview

Riso on the Run invites our community to make their own personal planner while dabbling in design, printmaking, bookbinding, and finishing.

Step One: Design: Regardless if you are inspired by the trending bullet planner, prefer a page-a-day format, or want to keep it simple with a to-do list and spot for appointments, you can create your very own custom pages designed just how you want!

Step Two: Duplicate: After finalizing a black and white template for your planner pages, you’ll witness the wonders of the risograph machine! This automated duplicator from Japan looks like a photocopier but uses special drums of ink to produce lush prints in a variety of colors.

Step Three: Perfect Binding: After printing a stack of pages, learn how to turn them into a bound book. Perfect binding uses simple materials and PVA glue to adhere loose sheets of paper into a finished book.

Step Four: Trim: The final step of creating a professional-looking book is to use a guillotine to trim the book to its final dimensions.

Step Five: Start Planning!

All are welcome to come dabble with a new skill, including educators looking for new ideas, first-time artists, professionals, and everyone in between.
