Free ZineLab Workshop: DIY Zine-Making with Oscar Ruth
February 29 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Zines are potent tools of self-expression. All it takes to transform a single sheet of paper into an 8-page mini magazine is a few folds and a single cut. What you put in the zine is your decision! It could be a story, poem, or spell that’s been percolating within you, or it could emerge through a collage process. Your finished zine can be photocopied after the event and shared with friends, keeping the spirit of DIY publishing alive. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to express yourself and connect with like-minded individuals. Hope to see you there!
Materials & instructions will be provided.
If you have them, you could bring collage content, glue, scissors, and mark-making tools (pens, markers, crayons, etc.) for self-expression
Meet your Facilitator
Oscar Ruth, local herb tender and vegetable grower, first made a zine in 2015. “In Praise Of…” launched an obsession. Since then, they’ve created countless collage zines and have shared the paper-folding technique with anyone curious about the DIY publishing format. Oscar co-organized the DC Zinefest for five years before they moved to a farm where they now enjoy hosting zine labs.
