Zines & Instant Books Workshop
We are holding ONE DAY ZINE making event as both the MCA Zine Fair and Other Worlds Zine Fair being held in Sydney on the same weekend as we want to get in on the zine action…if only from afar!
Ms Browns Lounge will host the ZINE & INSTANT BOOK making workshop as a REGIONAL CELEBRATION of instant artists’ books and self publishing!
Join us in making a series of artists books in this one day workshop! Fold, cut, score, tear, sew and explore a variety of simple yet beautiful and effective zine and instant book structures in this introductory workshop.
DIY publishing is in full effect these days and whether you’re a graphic designer, artist or creative enthusiast these book structures will add a whole lot to your practice or process.
