Inkwell and MAKE! Skilled Hands present a workshop exploring the boundaries of printing with mimeograph machines (also called stencil duplicators), led by renowned expert Erwin Blok.
This technology predates the photocopier and is often compared to a manual Risograph machine. The mimeograph process is both digital and analog, and involves placing text, images, and hand-drawn artwork on a master screen, which is later used to print on the machine. By experimenting with color gradients and split CMYK various effects can be realized.
Participants will take home a series of prints using a range of different techniques and created on a number of restored machines provided by Blok.
Participation is limited to 8 people.
It is a 2-day workshop taking place on the 5th and 6th of December from 10 am to 5 pm at Inkwell, Kienitzer Strasse 103, 12049 Berlin
Erwin Blok, a Dutch collector of mimeograph technology and culture, divides his time between restoring time-worn equipment, collecting paraphernalia, and moderating workshops both internationally and at the Van Eyck Academy in Maastricht.
