Zine Workshop – February 24th, 2018

WHEN: February 24th, 2018 – Zine Workshop from 8:00am to 12:00pm. Taught by Mike Goodwin

COST: Free

Preregistration required….

WHAT’S A ZINE?  Not sure about the difference between a magazine and a zine? Here’s a quick definition: a zine is an independently published booklet, often by a single person. They used to be created by physically cutting and gluing text and images together onto a master flat for photocopying, but now it’s more common to produce the master by typing and formatting pages on a computer.

What you will learn:

  1. What is a zine
  2. History of zines
  3. Go over examples of zines from basic to more complex
  4. Other options for publishing your own work.
  5. Over view of zine making tools including photoshop
  6. Zine templates and tools
  7. Open discussion and hands on.

What to bring:

  1. Your laptop
  2. 15-20 images you might want to make into a zine
  3. If you can’t bring your PC you can print your images out in draft Quality to start the formatting process.  I will cover both approaches.

I will provide some templates and supplies to produce a basic zine.  We will have time to start a zine or developed an idea for one.

The workshop will be a relaxed discussion and hands on morning. I hope to give you tools and ideas on publishing you work, without breaking the bank.
