Link + Build: An Interconnected Zine Workshop
June 24, 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
This is a workshop meant to jumpstart and build on a zine idea that you already have, a place where you can get inspired by and learn from other people’s work and insights. How can we empower each other to pursue dreams that we’ve been stuck on? Together through discussion and linking each other’s expertise, we will evolve our zine ideas into tangible objects. We’ll run through basics like making a mockup and how to make a pamphlet stitch zine. Bring an idea (or many!) for a zine you’d like to make, paper, writing/drawing utensils, and a needle and thread. This online class requires students to have a computer or tablet to access publishing platforms, as well as reliable internet access to join the class on Zoom.
About the Instructor
Serena Hocharoen is an Asian-American artist working in installation, print, zines, fiber, sound and ceramics. The objects and spaces she makes are representations of dreams: dreams of remembering comfort, belonging, and transcendence. Originally from the Midwest, she is currently based in Philadelphia and holds an MFA in Printmaking from Tyler School of Art and Architecture.
$15 Community / $30 Cost of Workshop / $45 Sponsor
In an effort to keep workshops accessible to as many as possible, while compensating our instructors fairly and covering Soapbox costs, we’re pleased to offer a sliding scale. Our “Cost of Workshop” rate is the real cost of our workshop, and we need most people to register at this rate to run the workshop. For those who are able, please consider selecting the “Sponsor” rate to allow someone who cannot afford the real cost to participate. If you are someone experiencing hardship, please register at the “Community” rate. In evaluating where you fall on the scale, we ask you to consider the difference between sacrifice (making trade-offs in my discretionary spending) vs. hardship (paying full cost for this workshop prevents me from meeting basic needs).
