About This Class

Get ready to go zine crazy! Join the delightful designer and illustrator Kate Bingaman-Burt to learn how to make your first zine. This 45-minute class is full of history, ideas, and illustration tips to free your imagination and help you create an awesome, empowering little piece of print.

Zines are a cheap form of printed expression. They're DIY, easy to reproduce, and you don't need anyone's permission to get started. The whole point is sharing something YOU care about and YOU want people to know.

This class is chock-full of creative prompts — a zine about tiny office plants! your cell phone history! your first crush! — and a downloadable template to help you fold/cut in just the right places.

Illustrators, designers, and all creators welcome. Everyone should take this class! All you need is a sheet of paper, your brain, and some writing/drawing utensils. Don't overthink it! Grab a pen, an idea, and let's go.

Love it!!!
This has been a very interesting class. It's opened my eyes to new ideas on ways to use my creative skills to share my thoughts with the world. I even got an idea for a zine about the history of women in my family!
Great overview. I loved the samples she showed.
