Zines are a small, self-published magazine made up of images, text or a combination of both. They are designed to be easily reproduced, usually on a photocopier, and circulated. The fun thing about zines is anyone can make them and you don’t need a lot of equipment to do it. Grab your scissors, paper and a glue stick and you are ready to get creative.
On Tuesday the 6th of September as part of Reconnect @ Artworks we held a Making Zines workshop, where participants got to make their own zine using a variety of different materials and techniques. The zines could follow any theme. Participants were asked to bring a long an old artwork that hadn’t gone according to plan so they could learn different ways they could rework them to create a new piece to put in their zine.
Overall the day went really well, with the participants really enjoying the zine making process and left wanting to make more.
