Participants will be provided with a “Zine Making Kit” that will include all the materials they need in order to create zines. Our first weekend will start with an unboxing session to explore your new materials, and meet your fellow “Zinesters”. We will have special guest with some great zine-making tips to share.
Our last session is a cut and fold party, a celebration to put our final zines together after print and learn some more techniques. Finally zines will be distributed at comics shops, book stores, and through East End Arts – that’s right your zine will be published and shared with the world!
All sessions will be conducted online to maintain the safety of participants, artists and staff. We hope to conduct a final session in person with health and safety guidelines.
