"Do It Yourself!" Workshop #5: Zine-Making with Bridgett Johnson-Pride
As part of Houghton’s spring exhibition “Do It Yourself! Self-Publishing from Letterpress to LaserJet,” join local artists, zine-makers, and designers in a series of hands-on workshops. Workshops are free and open to the public, and all materials will be provided. Space is limited and registration is required.
Workshop 5: After exploring the exhibit, join Bridgett Johnson-Pride in creating your own zines and magazines. Participants will be encouraged to reflect on the exhibition and how the tenets of self-publishing resonate with them, or use images from the collection to create their own narrative. Participants will also learn how to fold a 1-page zine.
