I'm teaming up with some people to put on a show of tons and tons of mini zines in the gallery of Meltdown Comics. The idea is for the person to make a bunch of copies of a mini zine or art book and an accompanying display to hang on the wall. The display can be no larger than a square foot and should have a place for people to leave a donation when they take a zine, honor system style.
The idea is to try to have the walls covered with these different zine displays, so we've decided to have a few zine workshops to get interested newbies started on their minis.
Although I've been involved in the zine scene for 10 years now, I've only made a handful of zines, and the last one was maybe 6 years ago! I won't be doing the workshop alone, but I'm wondering if anyone has any tips on what should be covered or what you'd like to see in a workshop. I'm most familiar with the cut and paste method, which is easy for people to just dive into in a workshop, but should computer methods be covered in-depth as well?
I'm also possibly going to be giving a workshop on zines to an illustration class at a local art school, and so I'm wondering if any illustrators or art zine makers have any tips on giving a zine workshop specifically to artists?
Thanks so much for your help!
