Summer Youth Studio – From A to Zines: DIY Zine-Making Workshop

Venue: 1131 Mission Street

Summer Youth Studio: From A to Zines: DIY Zine-Making Workshop

What's a zine?! Short for magazine or fanzine, a zine is a homemade publication that is all about self-expression and creativity. In this two-week class, you'll learn the ABC's of zine production. In addition to learning several techniques for binding and folding paper into small books, we will briefly discuss the origins of zines and complete two projects, one as a group and one individually. The first is a collaborative zine based on a theme you will choose as a group. The second project will be an individual zine we will reproduce so you can trade with all your new friends. By the end of the course, you will get to take home a zine from everyone in the class starting your very own zine collection. No previous experience required!

COVID UPDATE

In response to the current COVID-19 situation, we require that all persons continue to wear masks at all times when in the Root Division space. For the safety of our students, artists, and extended community, we also require all students to provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination (or same-day negative test results) for entry to classes held indoors at Root Division.

You may bring a physical copy of your vaccination card or via digital download through the State of California Digital Vaccine Record Portal here. (You may also provide a negative test result taken before each class session. Please contact us with any questions about the types of test results accepted.)

We ask this as a show of community care and a move towards continued safety while gathering in-person.
