This workshop was for anyone who wanted a simple introduction to the world of zines, a rad form of expression in print based media.

Zines are generally short self-published works that are not made for profit, but self-expression. Participants were encouraged to bring old magazines, journal entries, found objects and old books for collaging while working with different –sometimes unconventional- materials. Participants organised content, designed spreads, put them together and learnt how they can be reproduced and shared.

This workshop was recommended for ages 15+

Fees: 30 AED
