What's a "zine"? A zine is a self-published magazine or chapter book made up of original and/or appropriated text and images. The word comes from magazine.

On June 10, 2018 we hosted our first zine-making party! We had 10 participants and lots of food, flowers & fun. It was almost everyone's first time making a zine, but after walking through the steps to folding/cutting the paper of the booklet itself, everyone relaxed and had fun planning, designing, writing and decorating their own zine. 

The best part of hosting this craft-making party was seeing everyone relax and get creative. Even though we used all the same materials everyone's zine turned out different: 

One of the easiest ways to make your own zine is to cut and paste photos from old magazines. To make your own zine at home, you can follow this simple tutorial.
