Drop in for a practical workshop on zine-making, the art of producing your own books by hand. If you like to write or draw, publishing zines is a great way to share your work and engage with other makers in Australia and around the world. The workshop will be led by Bailey Sharp, a local comics artist and zine-maker who helps run the Other Worlds zine fair in Sydney. Experienced zinesters or first-timers welcome. As we’re making, we’ll have a chat about the history of zines, how to get involved in the scene and discuss any questions you might have about making your own publications.
What is a zine? A zine (pronounced zeen) is an independently or self-published booklet, often created by physically cutting and gluing text and images together onto a master flat for photocopying. The publication is usually folded and stapled.
