In this three-hour workshop, participants will learn the basics of analog and digital zine-making from concept through to a final riso-printed zine. We’ll start by familiarizing ourselves with zines: what are they, what do they do and what can they do for me? We’ll move on to designing individual pages in a collective zine. We’ll learn about layout and continue to riso-printing, assembly, and self-distribution.
