On Tuesday, August 12th at 1pm, join Devon Kelley-Yurdin for an introductory zine-making workshop. Zines, short for “magazine” or “fanzine”, are small, self-published books usually produced using a photocopier. This workshop will explore the history of this form of underground publishing, as well as introduce a few simple binding and layout techniques. The primary technique explored during the workshop will be how to create a book using a single piece of paper. The content of zines can be about anything; personal narrative, political commentary, recipe books, comics, fan art, self-promotion… the sky is the limit! Kids and adults of all ages are welcome, but participants under 8 must be accompanied by an adult. Workshop tuition is $5-10 sliding scale, and paper and collage supplies will be provided. If you have preferred drawing utensils, or magazines to contribute to the collage library, please bring them along. Registration is recommended: call 853-4650 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to register.
