Zine Workshop: Eight Page Mini Zine


Last week I went to Waikowhai Intermediate School and did a zine workshop with them. Before I visited, I sent some slides for them to look at, to start thinking about what they could write/draw about in their zines (we only had an hour so we didn’t get into collage).

So I thought I’d share it here. With my upcoming zine workshop (July 15th – free & friendly, details here) and a lot of interest in the format, this might get a few of you started. If you’ve got an idea you want to test, or a question, feel free to tweet/facebook/instagram me @zrsouthcombe – or leave a comment below 🙂

Feel free to use these slides for personal or educational use, but I’d appreciate a link back to zrsouthcombe.com. Also, let me know! I’d love to hear about how you’ve used them.

Here’s a .ppt version for you to download: What the zine?

I thought about making a video about how to make the mini zines that we did at the workshop, but there are already so many online so I’ve linked to this one which is kinda fun (they say 8.5×11, but A4 – or any other size – works just as well). I can’t emphasise enough that you can make your zine about ANYTHING you want!
