Zines are a fantastic creative outlet! Express yourself in this DIY workshop where we’re giving you the tools to get your unique ideas, drawings and stories on paper.

Zines are easy to make independently published magazines that can be about anything – from comics, art and cooking, to poetry and more. Showcase your interests as we use everyday art materials to create collages and more through a hands-on cutting, folding and pasting project that you get to take home!

All participants will leave the workshop with a mini-zine of their own!
