Rock/Paper/Scissors Workshop Series:
Drop-in Zine Making with Sonali Menezes

February 25, 2024 / 11:00am – 4:00pm
Art Gallery of Guelph / Guelph, Ontario

As part of the Rock / Paper / Scissors Book & Print Fair, learn how to make every zinester’s favourite format of zine in this drop in workshop: the one page mini zine! With a few simple folds and one cut you can transform a single letter sized piece of paper into an 8 page mini zine ready to fill with your ideas, writing and artwork.
Already familiar with one page mini zine? How about we move on to an even smaller format: the itsy bitsy accordion zine! Want an even lower-key zine experience? Sit and read some of Sonali’s favourite zines from her personal zine library. Drop in anytime between 1-4pm.
This workshop will take place during the Book and Print Fair on Feb 25 on the 2nd floor of the AGG, which is accessible by stairs and elevator.
