Zines! A Crash Course in Experimental Self-Publishing
Thursday, November 18, 2021 – 6PM – 7:30PM

Join COLLIDER artist-in-residence, Claire Krüeger, for this virtual zoom workshop. Zines are self-published booklets aimed at inclusivity, unregulated self-expression, and connection over shared ideas. They are easy to make, easy to trade, and are also a great place to experiment with ideas—they are low-pressure enough that it does not hurt to try and fail or follow a tangent somewhere new.

Anyone can make a zine about anything; art, writing, photography, how-to and more. Learn about the history of self-published media and how to make your own. We will talk about various techniques and topics will include content, formatting, and design.

Registration is required. Please email Liz.Magee@lfpl.org.

Participants will receive the class link and recommended supply list when they sign up.

Ages 9+
