Zine Making

Taught by Orvokki Crosby

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 collage and drawing materials, participants will create pages for a zine on the general topic of “concern.” Any concern, significant or insignificant, is fair game—there are no rules. Students will leave their creation to be printed and can pick their zine up at a later date.

About the Instructor

Orvokki Crosby is an artist and owner of The Concern Newsstand, a curated bookstore that offers a selection of artist books, zines, comic books, art books and hard-to-find magazines. It has a presence on the web and brick & mortar spaces at Lump Gallery in Raleigh and Attic 506 in Chapel Hill.

About the Location

This workshop will be held in the Rubenstein Arts Center’s Makerspace.
