HANDS-ON HOUSTON: ZINES 101

Time
Saturday, November 6, 2021 from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm
Location
Houston Center for Contemporary Craft
4848 Main St. (Map)

Join HCCC to learn the basics of creating your own zine, inspired by the fall exhibition, Copy Culture: Zines Made and SharedZines are self-published, do-it-yourself booklets that got their name from “magazine” or “fanzine.”  Zines touch on a variety of topics, from music and art to politics, humor, and personal stories. Write, draw, stamp, collage, or use any combination of words and imagery to create a one-page zine in a variety of styles.  Choose a comic-strip story, go abstract, or find another style to express yourself. What will your zine be about?

This activity will take place inside and is on a first-come, first-served basis, while supplies last.

HANDS-ON HOUSTON is a free drop-in event held the first Saturday of every month. Each month, a teaching artist demonstrates a craft related to the current exhibitions. Families and children of all ages are welcome to come any time between 11 AM and 3 PM and participate in a 15 – 20 minute activity. Materials are provided. This program supports HCCC’s mission to advance education about the process, product, and history of craft. Learn more here.
