Publish your own zine with Miss Helen & Professor Lau Lau 

Untitled

Zines (short for “fanzines” or “magazines”) are self-published booklets about any subject that grabs you. There’s a rich zine culture around the world, where music fans, writers, comic book artists, citizen journalists, poets, and others of every stripe are making, trading, and selling their creations. Zine-making is also a fantastic activity for kids. Not only are zines a fun means of creative expression, making them gives kids a little insight into how published books and magazines are made, and may help them think more critically about what goes into those mainstream publications. This workshop is suitable for 8-14 year-olds.

Cut, paste, draw and write to create your own publication. The zines will be made on our spot-colour Risograph machine.

When: 2pm-4pm, Sunday 22 March

Where: Rizzeria, 143 Norton Street Leichhardt

Cost: $17 + booking fee. Tickets available via http://www.eventbrite.com.au/e/publish-your-own-zine-with-miss-helen-and-professor-lau-lau-tickets-15628989729?aff=es2&rank=6 or in store.
