Zine Making Workshop

This program is for ages 8-18. Whatever you’re passionate about, learn to make a zine about it in our zine-making workshop—no artistic skills necessary. All materials provided. Part magazine, part art project, part note-that-gets-passed-to-you-by-a-kid-in-math-class, a zine is a do-it-yourself publication that combines words and pictures to share ideas, make arguments, or tell stories. Zine-makers use basic tools like Sharpies, scissors, old magazines, gluesticks, and staplers to create original zines about everything from women’s rights to fan fiction to anime—and beyond.
