Zine-Making Workshop

Friday, January 19, 2018 at 1:00pm to 3:00pm

Building 2, 2-103

Zines (rhymes with “beans”) are independently and often self-published, photocopied, cut-and-paste publications created for passion rather than profit. They have roots in 1950s sci-fi, punk rock, riot grrrl, and underground scenes. They are made for trading, communicating and sharing and cover any topic under the sun, including Dr. Who’s Authority Record, cats, social justice, cooking, parenting, and Morrissey.

In this workshop, we will examine zines from the 1990s to today, hear about current trends in zine librarianship, the mechanics of making zines, and, of course, we’ll make a zine! Attendees are encouraged to bring writings/art/craft supplies, etc. that can be used to create a zine. The instructor will provide supplies (paper, stamps, markers, stickers, old magazines, craft paper, pens, staplers, glue sticks).
