A zine is about making a small maga“zine”. Pronounced, “zeen”. This is a perfect chance to tell a story. Each participant will create individual Zines focusing on but not limited to personal memoirs.

A zine is a self-published, non-commercial print work that is typically produced in small, limited batches. Zines are created and bound in many DIY ways, but traditionally editions are easily reproduced—often by crafting an original “master flat,” and then photocopying, folding, and stapling the pages into simple pamphlets. Zines may also be sewn, taped, glued—or even exist in unbound and other non-folio formats. The main rule is that there are no rules!

People who create zines [“zinesters”] are likely to be more motivated by self-expression and artistic passion than they are by profit: zines are usually inexpensive and sometimes distributed for free or in trade for other zines, goods, and services. Learn about the history of vast and fascinating zines and make your own.

Zines can touch on a variety of topics from music and art to politics, humor, and personal memoir. Their content may be written, drawn, printed, collaged, or any other form of combining words and imagery—a zine’s structure may be narrative, journalistic, comic-like, or completely abstract. A supply list will be provided upon registration and supplies are not included in the cost of the class.

This is an online class. Participants will make art at home with live guidance from the instructor.

What you’ll need:

  • Internet access.
  • An internet-connected device with audio and video capabilities. A computer or laptop is highly recommended, but participants can join by phone or tablet if needed.
  • Zoom, which will be our primary platform. No account is required, and secure links and passwords will be provided by the instructor.
  • Adequate space for making art.
  • Art supplies, as listed on each class's supply list, provided by email. Participants are responsible for securing the supplies needed for each class (for example, if you already have scissors and glue, you don’t need to order them), and the cost of art supplies is not included in the class fee.
