Project Day: Zines


*New Dates Coming Soon*
Saturday 11am—5pm

This course will cover the basics of zine making; looking at image selection, conceptual direction, print and binding methods.


Tutor: Angelo Karle

Photography has a rich history of self-publishing and DIY approaches to the sharing of work, exemplified by the current exhibition of Café Royal Books. If you’re inspired by a more lo-fi way of making and want to try it yourself, join us for a project day dedicated to making your own zines.

This course will cover the basics of zine making with a view to the inter-relation of concept and material, asking how image selection or conceptual direction can influence your choice of print and binding methods. We will also explore how the zine format and DIY ethic has a democratising potential for artists. Participants will get the opportunity to create their own zine during the course and can come prepared with images or art to work with. Alternatively, participants can simply allow themselves to be inspired by the workshop and the example zines provided on the day.

This course is run by Angelo Karle, creator of ‘the first word you see describes who you are’. Angelo’s practice explores themes of pathologies, transgenderism and (pseudo)sciences.
