I am looking forward to leading Make a Zine Day, hosted by Tulpehocken Exchange in the historic Germantown neighborhood in Philadelphia. This event will be less of a workshop and more of a gently guided afternoon of zine making. I'll have lots of materials and tools for you to use—including clip art, rubber stamps, stencils, magazine pages, Letraset transfers, and a typewriter—and I'll show you how to do a couple simple binding and layout techniques. The rest is up to you! Come prepared with your sketchbook, an idea for a piece of writing, a few poems, or anything else that inspires you. We'll brainstorm together too, so don't worry if you don't already know what you'd like your zine to be about.
This event is for seasoned zinesters and absolute beginners alike. Come out to make new friends, listen to music, eat some snacks, and make a zine!
$20 a person. See the Handmade Philly website for tickets.
