Zine is short for Magazine

We will be making Zines that are dedicated to artwork, poetry, cartoons, editorials and short stories. We will have several sizes and templates to work from. After we complete a few we can enjoy our little gallery of zines.

Because zines do not have any sort of corporate backing, they are very rugged, individualized, they are much more charismatic than larger, more popular magazines whose content is often dictated by their advertisers.

Bring an apron, paper towels, unscented baby wipes, and your design ideas — artwork, drawings, photos, poetry, cartoons, sayings etc. that you want to include. 

Junanne has also requested that all participants be vaccinated in order to register

Release your inner creativity. Design and make simple woodcut printing blocks.
Peck will guide you through the process of drawing, carving and printing your image onto an MDF board. 

Printing from a drawing carved into wood is the oldest and most straightforward form of printmaking. All aspects of the process will be covered, including drawing on the block, carving your design and printing techniques for making black-and-white and color prints. Open to all levels, and an excellent introduction to printmaking for beginners.

At the end of your workshop, you will have produced your very own one-color woodcut print on paper and fabric.

No experience is necessary and the workshop is open to anyone who wants to learn how to carve and print.
