SOLD OUT: Zine Making

  • MODA 1315 Peachtree Street Northeast Atlanta, GA, 30309 United States (map)


“In her hands, there’s revolutions!” - Bikini Kill

Join us on February 25 from 12:30 - 3 p.m. and learn how to express yourself through zines! Zines are self-circulated, self-published books that were created to represent subcultures, discuss issues, and share experiences not expressed in mainstream media.

From subversive printing practices, to the riot grrl movement, to contemporary zine movements, we’ll understand how zine making started and the philosophy of social justice that it embodies. Then, we’ll get hands-on, cutting and folding our way to making a one-page zine. No computer needed here - only your passion and imagination. You’ll learn all about how the zine movement started, why they’re important, and how to continue making them. You’ll even get a zine full of tips at the end of the workshop.


Participation and Materials Fee: $15 for non-members, $10 for MODA members.
This fee covers everything you need to create and bring home your own awesome zine: a how-to zine, sample zines, folding directions, the riot grrl manifesto, and everything you need to create your own zine in-class. It also includes admission to MODA’s current exhibition, Designing for a Playful City.

Appropriate for ages 14+. Please reach out to the facilitator, Jess Lewis if you have questions or accessibility needs.
