× Zines – what the heck are zines? Simply put, they're self-published booklets of art or writing (or both!) that are casually sold or traded among the underground art community of ‘zinesters'. But more importantly, zines are whatever you want them to be. As a medium with no gatekeeper of success or inclusion, zines allow us to put onto paper whatever we need to express, whether we share it with the whole world or just keep a single copy for ourselves. This class will teach you the fundamentals of zinecraft – from plotting to pagination – for your own projects and combine participants' perspectives and styles to produce a collaborative Workman Arts zine.

Instructor: Aus Bahadur

Aus is a queer, brown, non-binary, intersectional feminist born and raised in the Dish with One Spoon wampum treaty land known as Toronto. They founded and co-run the Wheelhouse; a zine distro and nonprofit designed to be a supporting resource for those facing barriers of accessibility, with the goal of building intersectional understanding and mutual support. They try to make art about survival, mental health, and the encroaching doom that awaits us all… but mostly (just barely) make rent. You can find out more at or on Instagram at
