In the Studio: DIY Zine Kit


I’m heading over to the Tauranga Zinefest this weekend, and since it’s strictly a zinefest I’m not allowed to exhibit my fiction books. So, I figured this is a great opportunity to stretch my brain and fill my table with something else.

For a few weeks, I had a poetry and art zine in mind, but I barely made any progress and I know it sounds like a lame excuse, but I just wasn’t feeling inspired.

And then I had an idea. A number of people have been quite interested in the zine-making process, and some creative friends – Amanda, Inger and Karyn – have all taken the zine format into their own hands. I love being able to kick-start creativity!

Enter the DIY Zine Kit.

I like researching my ideas, and seeing what else is out there. I was surprised to find that there weren’t many zine kits available, so I had to resort primarily to my own imagination. It also made it hard to price so I’ve gone with materials + time = NZ$5 – get yours here.

And here’s the zine kit!

Four blank mini zines, all cut and folded and ready to go.
Two coloured felt pens
Eight stickers
A Zine Idea Generator mini zine, to get you started

You can purchase the DIY Zine Kit from Felt or Etsy.
