Join Lele Saveri, founder of 8-Ball Community, for a free one-day workshop intended for young professionals, students, and creatives who are interested in creating and producing zines. Throughout the day participants will experiment with sequencing and editing, as well as learn about different printing, binding, and formatting techniques that go into zine production. Participants will look at both current and past issues of Aperture Magazine to draw inspiration for their own zines.

The first session, June 15, is reserved exclusively for students/young adults, ages 15–24.

The second session is open to all.

Materials will be provided. Light refreshments will be served throughout the day.
