A few weeks ago I led a zine workshop at a lovely new maker space in Philadelphia called the Tulpehocken Exchange. It was a sweet afternoon of industrious creativity, snacks, and chats. Together with my husband Joseph Carlough, I'll lead three more workshops over the next three months. Sign up here.

What is a zine you may ask? It’s a self published, small circulation book. DIY. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zine
