Open Mic Zine Camp Reading

Come hear the participants of Zine Camp read from their final projects at this free open mic event.

D. I. Y. Pefect Binding

Making a book, zine, or journal that has 30+ pages? Looking to try something different than staples and heavy folded binding? Then “do it yourself” perfect binding it just the workshop you need. In this single-session class, you’ll learn fast and simple solutions for folding, stacking, stitching and binding that use inexpensive materials and leave you with a clean flat spine that can hold text. Your covers will lie flat, and a spine on the shelf says something.

Cost: $25 members / $45 nonmembers

Beginning InDesign

Put down the glue sticks and scissors and learn to use Adobe In Design, a powerful page layout and print design progam that allows you to create and deliver printed documents or multi-page books that are both attractive and effective. This one-session workshop will get you rolling with InDesign.
