Rabbits Road Press is a community risograph print studio and publishing press run by OOMK. The project is based at Rabbits Road Institute, within Old Manor Park Library. The small-scale publishing press provides printing and book binding services for artists and community groups in Newham and beyond.  

A responsive programme of workshops and events explore a contemporary model for community publishing, bringing together artists, designers, writers and local people. The project builds on Rabbits Road Institute’s initiative to establish an accessible and diverse community art space to support the development of new skills, knowledge sharing and social exchange for people living in Newham.

Rabbits Road Press runs Open Access sessions every fortnightly on Wednesdays from 2-7pm during term time, see here for Sep-Dec dates. The sessions are free and open to all, providing an opportunity for people to learn about Risograph printing and offering a space in which to work on creative projects. For more information about how to become a member and receive a free Risograph printing induction visit the Open Access page. 

With a focus on design education, OOMK also offer a range of private Risograph printing workshops at Rabbits Road Press. Clients and institutions we have worked with include London College of Fashion, Kingston University, Maslaha, Peabody Foundation and Create London. Workshops range from Introduction to Risograph Printing to bespoke graphic design, zine making and drawing workshops. Please contact us for more information.
