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.

I'm loving this class! I've been toying with the idea of a zine and this gives me tons of ideas and I love the template for a 1page zine which makes things so much easier as I start out. Can't wait to get going!
Absolutely one of my favorite classes I've watched on Skillshare. Thanks!
You can make your Zine in an hour. Great to boost your willingness to express yourself.
