The practical, hands-on workshop will introduce you to the basics of making a zine and give you an opportunity to conceptualize and create your own publications and take it home. Join Adam as he talks about his first zine Talking About Feelings, and explores how to put together a one-sheet folded zine by juxtaposing text, visuals and illustrations. The session will also highlight how to fold, collate and reproduce zines, so you can create, exchange zines and walk away with multiple copies of your work in print, along with some of your peers’ work.
