Zines (short for “fanzines” or “magazines”) are self-published books about any subject and can take many forms. They are the perfect introduction to bookmaking and the creative empowerment of self-publication. There’s a rich zine culture around the world, where everyone from artist, music fans, writers, journalists and poets are making, sharing and selling their creations. In this workshop we will make an 8 page zine from a single sheet of paper. Once we have created our stories and fold the book, they will then be copies and ready to share with the world.
