How to Make a Zine

Join us to learn how to create your own Zine! Zines are self-published collections of text and/or images on a theme. We’ll provide instructions and materials, and then you can get to using writing, collage, drawing, stickers and more to make your own booklet. This workshop is open to all young family and friends of people with disabilities, chronic illness, or mental health challenges.

Drawing, collages, and other materials and techniques (all provided) will be used to create one-of-a-kind books. Come chat, learn, and creatively explore what it means to be there for someone with mental health challenges, chronic illness, or disabilities by making a zine!

What is a Zine?

Zines are typically unique, handmade, hyper-local booklets that can be private or may be used to quickly spread ideas to other members in the community. The main difference between a magazine and a zine is that zines are not out there to make a profit but, rather, to add other, often unheard voices into the mix.  At its simplest, this tiny folded book can be made with one sheet of paper, a pair of scissors and a pen. Learn more here.

What will we be doing?

We will instruct you on two ways to make a zine, and provide some prompts, or even a full template for your booklet. You can make a zine just for you, for sharing, or as a contribution to a collaborative zine dedicated to “young carers,” the young family and friends of people with disabilities or mental health challenges.
