Event description
Session 2 of 2. A fun (online) program that teaches youth (ages 9+) the art of making zines!

About this event

This is session 2 of 2. The Shelf Life Books Youth Zine program is an opportunity for youth (ages 9+) to explore self-publishing practices with the guidance of professional artist, Carlan Savage-Hughes. The participants will explore alternative forms of story-telling, comic drawing and visual communication. They will come away from this program with new book-binding and folding techniques that they can use to make their own zines at home!

The event will be pay-what-you-can; all proceeds will go to the artist!

Because this is an online program, participants will be expected to provide their own materials. Suggested materials include:

-Paper

-Drawing/colouring supplies

-Needle and thread (for May 16th workshop only)

-Collage material— old magazines and glue (recommended but not required)

What is a zine?

Popularized by the DiY movement of the 1980’s, zines are small, self-published magazines made to be easily distributed and shared. They can be created with a variety of intentions, such as activism, sharing one’s art, poetry or experimental writing. For examples, check out Shelf Life Books’ zine selection!

Who is Carlan?

Carlan Savage-Hughes seeks to make visible the divine, doing so by tracing the poetics of objects, images and relationships. Her additional facilitation and curatorial practices are centred around strengthening independent arts communities as an act of resisting the capital-driven values of the art world. A Mohkinstsis (Calgary) born artist, Carlan recently graduated from Emily Carr University with a major in Fine Arts and a minor in Social Practice and Community Engagement.
