She was so inspired that they got their own machine!

Melanie got in touch to let us know about a new exhibition in Ottawa. "In researching and writing the Risograph article for the Printmaking issue of UPPERCASE magazine, I had the opportunity to connect with amazing artists, designers, studios and presses around the world who use the Risograph in their work," she writes. "Inspired by their work, I've organized through our creative studio, Spins & Needles, our celebration of print around the Risograph featuring some of the artists and presses in the UPPERCASE article. Prints & Inks 2015: Risograph Edition presents several emerging and established international artists, designers, publishers and studios who are pioneering and producing work on the Risograph, pushing the boundaries of print, and disseminating ideas through print in an affordable and accessible way."
