Create your own small-run publications with your photographs in this photo-zine workshop for all ages. A zine (pronounced “zeen”) is an open invitation to make a statement about anything and share it with others. Bring your photos, clip out appropriated text and images. Rip, draw, paint, or write a unique zine about whatever you want! Zines are intended to break boundaries and act as a DIY platform for your voice. This 3-part workshop explores a short history of zines and artist books with a visit to the Denver Zine Library and guides students in simple bookbinding techniques.

Materials Needed:

  • Students must supply their own printed photographs.
  • Magazines, newspapers, and random junk mail will be available to use, along with scissors, glue, pens, and markers.
  • Students are welcome to bring in any additional supplies to create their zine.
