Join Tara Bursey, Associate Educator at the Art Gallery of Burlington, as she shares information about the origin of zines, shows off zines from her own private collection, and explains how you can make an easy 8-page mini-zine of your own.

Materials list for Make-A-Zine:

  • 8.5 x 11″ paper, white and in assorted colours
  • Glue stick
  • Magazines
  • Scissors
  • Assorted art making tools (pencils, pens, fine line black markers, coloured markers)
  • Access to a photocopier, if possible

Zines are self-published books that have allowed people of all ages to share their passions, ideas and values. They often contain art, ideas, information, and experiments incorporating visual art, writing, and a do-it-yourself attitude.
