I am a co-founder of Riso Soup 🥣, a Dundee based collective exploring risograph printing. Since 2014 we’ve been making limited edition, experimental publications, working within the limitations of the riso printing process. Want to get involved? Send us a message on Instagram. We are always up for getting our zines out there, stockists, zine fairs and distros! :)
Interview: People of Print
Riso Soup is a sister project of Dundee Print Collective, specialising in Risograph printing projects. Working with DPC and Dundee Contemporary Arts Print Studio, Riso Soup have made 11 Riso publications and print projects since 2014, spanning a wide variety of subjects and styles. The eclectic ‘soup’ of members is ever evolving, often including students and artists new to printmaking - Risograph is a great entry point. They attend zine fairs around the UK and Europe, distributing members zines, and have also worked with artists to create co-editioned works. During the pandemic, Riso Soup ran two online open call projects called Pick ‘n Mix, where 2 colour print submissions were produced in small editions and sent back to their creators by post, along with a selection of the other artists work, in the spirit of a socially distanced ‘zine swap’.
Our current project is called MISPRINT, and will be launched in Bristol at the IMPACT 12 Printmaking Conference this September.
