Zines are handmade magazines with a long, rich history. They’re inexpensive, easy to make, and can be a useful project for adults and children alike. In use before the 1920s, zines are being created and sold or traded worldwide today!
Zine Make & Take | TBA Richmond, Lexington, Rowan Co.
Come play with pen and paper. No writing, drawing, or zine skill required. Paper provided, bring a pen and a pair of scissors if you have them. I’ll go wherever I’m requested – I normally teach free, but appreciate attendees throwing into a tip jar that helps me cover supplies and travel expenses. Drop me a note if you’d like to host me for an evening workshop.
Looking for libraries, storefronts, makers spaces, or an art-friendly cafe. Contact me via email if you have or know of a location!
KENTUCKY FRIED ZINE FEST | TBA, Lexington, KY
If you would like to make a zine with me, I’m going to have space on my table for my students. If you have never been to a zine fest, you are in for a treat. I am also running the collaborative zine – ITEM – so come play with me there, too.
CURRENT ZINE CALLS
