Multi-Dimensional Zine Workshop @ The Common Canary

Make Zines with me at The Common Canary!

Zines are dear to me for their versatility: they can be anything from revoluntionary treatises, costumed cat coloring books, to memoirs. And, they can bend the rules of reality and physics!

In this hands-on workshop, we’ll make some flexy-zines that fold and unfold in surprising ways. From there, we’ll work on narratives and how we can transform our perspectives and thinking through one-page comics and zines!

Hosted by me and my dear friend and fellow local artist and arts educator Christina Tran, this workshop is designed for adults, teens and families with kids ages 9 and up.

All materials and instruction provided!

Accessibility note: The event will be hosted in a workshop space located in the garage of a residential address. There will be access to a bathroom. COVID vaccines and masking are appreciated. Extra masks and hand sanitizer will be available! Please refrain from coming to the event if you are feeling sick, and we ask that you communicate with us afterward if you become symptomatic or discover you were in line of exposure.
