About the Workshop

A zine is a self-published, non-commercial magazine, typically devoted to unconventional subject matter. In this two-hour workshop, students will learn zines by making one. Using images and text to collage, participants will create a zine on any topic of their choice- or no topic at all, there are no rules! Students will use the “One-Page” method to make a mini 8-page zine out of one sheet of paper to take home at the end of the workshop.

River makes a variety of mixed media art focusing on material reuse, and sells locally at markets and online under her business, Rivtak, established in 2007.
