A Workshop with Colin Matthes
Fee: $85/$75 members
Registration: Space is limited. Register by phone 414-446-8794 or day-of.
This workshop is part of Developing the Artist's Book: Techniques and Procedures, a series of workshops at Lynden throughout the spring of 2017. For more information, click here.
Do you want to share your work with a wider audience? To make things that you and your friends can afford or that you can give away? How about making tangible objects that can be widely disseminated? Publications you can share and use without wearing gloves?
This workshop will introduce the world of self-publishing and zine-making from a contemporary art perspective. We will cover all the steps of production including content generation, mock-ups, layout, reproduction tricks and techniques, and binding. Each student will leave the workshop with a copy of the zine we have made collaboratively over the course of the day.
There are no prerequisites for this workshop. We are all experts in our own experience, and this knowledge will be used to generate the content of our zine. Publishing, drawing, and writing experience is not necessary.
