Design, create and publish your own zine!

A zine (pronounced zeen) is a self-published booklet, often created by collaging drawings, text and images together and photocopying to create small print batches. At the core of the zine-making ethos are freedom of thought and speech, subversion and a DIY attitude.

In this workshop we will be creating our own zine and exploring this sub-culture by:

- Developing a concept or story for your zine

- Creating the pages of the zine using collage, drawing, print and digital techniques

- Printing a small batch (10 copies) of your zine!
