7 PM CDT
Gaelila McKaughan, Instructor
Gaelila is a senior at LASA with many creative hobbies she doesn’t take very seriously. Zine-making is one of them. Occasionally, she actually finishes her projects!
A zine (short for fanzine, or magazine) is a self-published, amateur-produced, independent magazine; a small, underground, noncommercial publication, historically made for the purpose of sharing knowledge or experience of marginalized voices, outcasts, and countercultures; featuring images and text, art and expression, emotive communication, and information dissemination.
Be introduced to the exciting world of zines through this quick workshop. We’ll be learning some of the basics, and then we’ll start on a “New Years’ Zine!” with new year resolutions, goals, and reflections. But, as in zine culture, all rules are made to be broken, so don’t be afraid to stray from the path. Beginners welcome!
- A sheet of paper (or two, just in case)
- Writing utensils (markers, pens, pencils)
- Glue stick (liquid works okay, stick is best)
- Collage materials (magazines, stickers, newspaper cutouts, concert tickets, bus passes, receipts, etc.)
Tip: If you’re like me, and like to spend more time perusing than choosing, you may want to cut out and separate your collage materials before the workshop, which’ll allow you more time during the workshop to paste and collage!
