Intensive fanzine workshop

Taller fanzine

A fanzine is an experimental, open and affordable publication which embraces all projects and ideas. Would you like to make one?

In this intensive workshop we’ll learn how to make a fanzine, from the initial idea through to materialisation. We’ll take a closer look at self-publishing and its history and use examples of fanzines to inspire our work. After producing our own fanzine we’ll have the tools we need to work with this medium from now on.
