Zine Workshop

Zine Workshop: A definition…

An inexpensively produced, self-published, underground publication; a cheaply printed magazine published irregularly by amateurs, esp. one featuring images and ideas reflecting unconventional, often alienated thought; A zine is a small magazine about a particular subject, written by people who are interested in that subject rather than by professional journalists.

Self-publish your thoughts or stories in this zine workshop. Create a small pamphlet; collage, drawing, photograph, photocopy, paginate, fold, collate, reproduce and bind a bundle of publications to disseminate amongst friends, family, colleagues and strangers!

**And finally… Swap and share with your fellow workshoppers and submit a copy to our Zine Library**

There’s a great article here about the zine community in Philadelphia

On the Day

In this session we will create content by sketching, collage, pen and ink, photocopying and rubber stamping – or bring your own ipad / laptop – and then we shall look at layout and printing the final creation before binding using a simple stitch or fold technique.
You’ll produce 10 zines in this session and all materials and resources are provided (apart from ipads / tablets / laptops). All you need to bring are your ideas and a creative thought!
Suitable for aged 10 years+ and no previous experience required.
