About This Class

Hello! In this class I will be showing you how to make a Zine out of a single piece of paper!

Zines are a great indie way to self-publish and circulate your work and ideas easily, cheaply and effectively. You can fill your Zines with anything: art, text, jokes, collage, political commentary, fan art/literature - literally anything you want to share with your audience.

As Zines are so quick, easy and cheap to produce and distribute, Zines are usually sold fairly cheaply, or given out for free and left on tables in cafes and librarys etc.

For this class you will need:

  • Paper (A4 or A3 size)
  • A pen
  • Scissors

That's it! Depending on how you may want your Zine to look you may need more equipment, for example  you might like to collage text from magazines or you might want to add colour - in this case you will need to add magazine cuttings, glue and coloured pencils. But today I'll just be going through the basic bones of the Zine - after that you can make of it what you will!

For you to download:

In the 'Your Project' tab above, you can access:

  • A zine template to help you orientate your content correctly
  • Two Free Zines! (back and front) that you can print and keep, or use as a reference.

Please upload your Zine to the class project, to help other students see different takes on the Zine and what can be done with it! Either photograph or scan it in!
