About the Programme

In this workshop, participants will be creating experimental zines that focus on format and illustrated panels to enhance their narrative and concept.

Participants will also be briefly introduced to the development of zines with unique formatting, where the artist will share about special-format zines she has collected over the years.

Before the session, try to research other artworks or book formats that you like, to be used as inspiration for your zine, (for example, multi-panel wall art, or folded paper). The artist will then guide participants to create a maquette, test out papers, and cut out shapes, to see what works best for their narrative, world, or concept, before starting work on their actual zine!
