Bloom Collective to host Zine making workshop this Saturday

November 9, 2010

Zines have been around since the 1970s, as an effective way to protest the idea that
information can be “owned” or copyrighted.

In the 1980s and 90s zine making became popular within the DIY and punk scene as a way of self-expression and a form of resistance against commercial culture and even official left magazines, which tend to rely on a small sector of experts who can tell us all what to think.

In order to promote more independent media and highlight their zine collection, the Bloom Collective is hosting a “How to” zine making workshop.

Zine making workshop

2 – 4pm

671 Davis NW – in the Steepletown Center building

The Bloom Collective will have supplies needed for the workshop, but if you have markers, scissors, glue and old magazines that you can bring it would be welcomed.

There are lots of good online resources on how to make a zine, such as the Pony Boy Press Blog and this E-how site. Here is a nice video How To by a woman who makes zines and edits other Indy Media.

    What if I want to make a Zine about how I support capitalism, free market policies, and zero socialist programs?
