Zines and Comics Workshop

Zines and Comics Workshop with Annie at Eckersley’s Castle Hill

About this event

Learn to make mixed media zines and comics in this 4-part class with Annie Huang, artist, writer, publisher and zine maker.

Zines are small-circulation self published printed works, typically made by hand and can be about anything you want. Comics are stories presented in a combination of narration, dialogue and drawings. In this 4 week course you will learn the differences and similarities between the two, how to make your own, the local zine and comics culture, and produce one or more zines of your own.

At the end of each class you will be able to take home the zines and comics you make, and by the end of the 4 week course you’ll have a beginner’s understanding of taking a story from idea to presentation, where and how you can take these zines and comics to share or sell to others, and connect with the wider zine community.

This class is suitable for people aged 9 - 100, and for all levels of experience, art mediums and styles. Zines and comics are for everyone.
