Partnership with Duke Arts Create & DuWell
About the Workshop
Do you need a creative break from life right now? Come make a self-care zine!
Zines are handmade magazines or booklets about anything. They can be made up of drawings, lists, thoughts, advice, collages, comics, and so much more. In this workshop you’ll be taught how to make one with just a standard sheet of paper and then led to draw and/or write with prompts about joy, bad days, and hope.
This workshop is designed for anybody who enjoys drawing, journaling, and/or writing.
This class is one of three in a series of workshops in partnership with DuWell. Each of the three workshops offers a different Zine construction format, and a variation on the theme of wellness. The series will culminate in an exhibition at the Student Wellness Center on December 1st. All who participate in the class will have the opportunity to display artwork from their Zine in the exhibition, and Duke Arts will produce limited runs of each of the Zines produced as giveaways at the opening. The goal of this series is to empower students, faculty, and staff, to be the architect of their own wellness through creative expression and to share that through the self-published medium of Zines. Students may attend one or all of the workshops.
About the instructor
Janelle Hutchinson is the Lead Designer and Photographer for Duke University Libraries. Her work includes magazines, exhibits, signage, illustrations, and even a couple zines! She started taking photos in elementary school with disposable cameras and hasn’t stopped since (the cameras have slowly evolved though). Zines became her source of comfort at the start of the pandemic (along with sudoku for some reason?) and she continues making them for herself and friends today. She lives in Durham with her husband, toddler, and dachshund.
