With zines, anyone can be an author, editor, artist and publish their own small-circulation book, magazine or comic. In this 3-hour workshop you'll have the opportunity to learn about making a small zine (A7) with 8 pages. It requires no sewing and is super simple to put together. The class will also cover themes and how to design a zine. At the end of the workshop, you will have the opportunity to print 10 copies of your own two-colour zine on a variety of paper options.

The best bit about making zines on the Risograph is having the opportunity to play with the wild spot colours that you can't get with digital printing. The affordability of Risograph printing makes it especially suitable for small print runs.

This class is presented by Jo Ellis, who has been making Risograph art since 2008.

01 September 2016 • Make A Zine: Riso Edition

So I made a zine to feature one of my poems. Jesse was really helpful and helped me produce something I felt proud of. I really enjoyed and hope to make another zine in September.
