Become a Zinester - Virtual Workshop
Time & Date TBD
In celebration of the Wisconsin Funnies exhibit, Milwaukee Zine Fest (MZF) is here to teach you how to make your own zines! Learn more about these self-published magazines, an easy way to make them, and how comics and zines work together. This is a hands-on virtual workshop via Zoom. Each participant will create a page for a group comic zine that MZF will collect digitally and compile into a collaborative final product. No special technology or supplies required, though we'll provide a recommended supply list in advance.
