Print, design & creative workshop studio based in the heart of Nottingham, specialising in screen printing & Risograph.
Still I Rise Mimeograph Workshop 👀👀👀👀👀👀
Protest, community, power, resistance and subversion - the first mass produced home printer changed the way the public interacted with politics and the spread of information. The Mimeograph gave the general public the opportunity to produce their own flyers, posters and pamphlets to share ideas and organise movements.
Using one of the few remaining, working stencil duplicators, Dizzy Ink will instruct a day in Notts Zine Library producing a body of work with a group of creatives. The workshop will focus on the production of activist media in various forms from stickers to posters and the methods groups used to make their own.
Throughout the day, we will use the current exhibition ‘Still I Rise’ as inspiration for the work we will make. Dizzy Ink will facilitate the making of stickers, a collective publication and small exhibition in Notts Zine Library.
Saturday, 12th January

We provided free design services to The Women's Centre last week to help them with their recent poetry work.
Used a range of pastel coloured paper backgrounds to add a wee extra as each zine becomes different - a reflection of the wonderful women that wrote the content.

Dizzy Ink finally has a Mimeograph to play with! They're basically what a Risograph is based on yet far more manual and simple. You can do strange things with the machines that you're unable to do on a Riso like print 600gsm, do split fountain gradients and, most exciting of them all, PRINT WITHOUT POWER!!! You can create the stencils by hand using a variety of tools then literally crank them out using the handle.
Been trying to get a working one for some time now after becoming fascinated by them. Forever the Godfather of these machines, Erwin Blok taught me the basics to repairing them at Magical Riso after chauffeuring them to his hotel room from Nottingham whilst Thomas from De Kijm wanted to sleep.
This is the start of a something special.
