Zines are DIY publications without limitations in size, shape, content or circulation size. Zines are also a way to connect with others and see the world from new perspectives. The lack of structure within zine-making is what makes the process fun. It can be difficult to know where to start, but anyone can make a zine!

In this workshop, we will discuss the history of zine-making and zine-related activism, explore different topics, media and formats, and create and print a collaborative booklet to serve as inspiration for future projects.

The theme for our zine will be “Home.” Bring 1-2 prepared pages (5.5” x 8.5”, half of a letter-sized sheet) or create something new during the workshop. Interpret the theme in any way you like: illustrations, photographs, collage, poetry, and prose are all welcome. We will layout, print and bind an edition of books together during class. Printing will be done using Verge’s Risograph ME9450.
