A “zine” (short for “fanzine”) is a self-made publication revolving around any number of subjects or topics of interest. This workshop will be an introduction to the world of zines and will go over some zine-making essentials. We will discuss the different styles and types of zines and go over the basic tools, materials, and techniques that can be used to make them. The class will culminate with each student producing their very own one-off zine. This tutorial is perfect for the novice wanting to try out a new creative outlet or for the seasoned zinester wanting a very back-to-basics refresher.
