Event description

Description

Zine : a magazine, especially: a non-commercial often homemade publication usually devoted to specialised and often unconventional subject matter.

In this workshop, zine legend Bastian Fox Phelan explores what zines are and how to make them. Bastian will show you how to make an 8 page mini zine from one A4 sheet of paper, and how to start making a multi-page A5 booklet. This is for anyone with an interest in writing, drawing, collaging, poetry, fan art, comic books or unconventional subjects!

Bastian Fox Phelan is a writer, musician and zinemaker. They have been part of Australia's zine community since 2005.

$25 per person. All materials supplied.

Bastian has organised zine fairs for National Young Writers' Festival, Sydney Writers' Festival, and Wollongong City Gallery. In 2018 Bastian worked with Museum of Contemporary Art Australia and National Young Writers' Festival to deliver their popular Zine Fair events - two roles they will continue in 2019.
