Come make zines with us at the Pride Center!

September 1, 2023

As part of the 2023 Brooklyn Book Festival, Brooklyn Community Pride Center will host a Zine-Making Workshop in partnership with Booklyn.

Zines are handmade books. Typically, they are created by individuals, by hand, with basic materials–paper, scissors, pens, and ideas. Zine-making can facilitate the development of personal and community-based storytelling.

In this workshop we’ll teach the one-sheet bookmaking technique to develop a personal story into a handmade zine. Participants will also be invited to contribute to a collectively made book, using the flag book technique. This is a free workshop. No experience is necessary. Materials and tools will be provided.

Please complete and submit the workshop registration form so we have a better idea on how many people will join the workshop. For more information and questions, please contact Jako Douglas-Borren at [email protected].

This workshop is made possible in part by funding from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in collaboration with the New York City Council.
