Starts: Thursday May 16th
6 – 9 PM
Instructor: Sonali Menezes
In this workshop we’ll learn the basic logistics of analog zine making. From the importance of a master copy, to layout and maximizing space and costs. Participants will learn how to make copies on the photocopier, efficient zine assembly and basic stapling and binding. Everyone is welcome to bring a zine that they’re currently working on for consultation and to practice making copies and assembling their zines during the workshop.
But what’s a zine anyways? Zines are small booklets or pamphlets. They often contain political writing, collages, articles, essays, drawing, poetry and are created for the purpose of cheap and easy self-publishing.
Artist Bio: Sonali Menezes is an artist, educator and zinester currently based in Hamilton, ON. She also uses performance, video, sculpture, printmaking, poetry and sometimes-exorbitant amounts of Manwich tomato sauce in her work. Her favourite pastime is taking long naps with her cat.
