Zines (pronounced like ZEEN) are small circulation self published works of texts and images made to be distributed via copy machine. Creating zines is a fun and easy way to express oneself, share skills or opinions, and share one’s art. With zine maker and artist Jamie John you’ll learn both some beginner friendly unique ways of paper folding techniques and guided through some examples to make your zine stand out! Jamie John will be giving demonstrations and talking about the history of zines from its beginnings in sci-fi and the Harlem Renaissance to Riot Grrl! and the current zine revival in the time of the internet. By the end of this workshop you’ll know more about zine history, what makes zines different from other art forms, and be able to take your zine home with you to make as many copies as your heart desires!
