Riso workshop with Hato Press, to compile, edit,  lay out and print a small series of booklets. These publications will bring together the documentation and related material compiled from the foraging walk and fermentation workshop with Zsófia Sonja Illés (Collective Plant, HU) and Anne-Lise Vredenbregt (Cuisine Vagabonde, NL) which took place on 26 June.

These new publications serve as the pilot of our series NET Books, a collection of instruction books (cook books, DIY books, manuals) in which we’ll collaborate with like minded publication initiatives, including X Marks the Bökship (UK), Temporary Services (US), Collective Plant (HU), Hato Press (UK) and more. The digital files for NET Books will be distributed between these organisations and each of them will print their version on their own stencil machine and distribute the collection via their network.
