We had a great time learning all about zine making with Kate Bingaman-Burt last month. This was a community workshop in partnership with the Independent Publishing Resource Center (IPRC). Not only did we learn all about the history of zines and how to make them, Kate shared her huge zine library with us, and lot's, and lot's of books on typography. There was about 36 of us that made zines on the topic of our favorite snacks, then we traded with everyone who attended. It was a great start to my new zine collection!
IPRC was the perfect place for the workshop. If you haven't been there you need to go! They had everything we needed to stamp, xerox, draw, and assemble. Beyond what we used to make our zines, the place is a publishing play house with an assortment of letterpress machines, typewriters, and other other book binding equipment.
Of course Kate was an awesome teacher, and as always a pleasure to learn from!
