Miniature zines are cute, they fit in your pocket, and they are inexpensive books that are easy to share and distribute. Made from one sheet of 8 ½” x 11” copy paper, miniature zines condense your ideas into digestible pages. This workshop will include demonstrations on how to lay out a miniature zine by hand using simple collage techniques, how to print double sided on a B&W copier, and how to bind your zines. At the end of this workshop, you will have your own pocket-sized zines to share with family and friends.
Students are responsible for the following supplies:
- Pens (ballpoint works, but Micron or Rollerball pens are best)
- Marker / Sharpie
- Artwork you would like to incorporate into a zine: Poetry, photographs, collage, drawings, etc.
- X-acto knife*
- Self-healing cutting mat (optional)
Materials with an asterisk (*) next to them are sold in our store.
