Zine Camp Summer Break is a full week of hands-on zine and bookmaking activities for kids aged 7-11 at Interference Archive in the Park Slope Neighborhood of Brooklyn, NY.

We’ll explore the world of DIY zine and bookmaking using paper, scissors, stamps, bone folders, photocopiers, punch binders, staple binders, needle-and-thread binding, and much more! Printmaking is a significant part of our curriculum and we’ll spend time exploring a range of techniques.

This year, we are thrilled to host Zine Camp Summer Break at Interference Archive, where we will have access to a Risograph duplicator!! Students will be able to explore this unique color printer, which has been enormously influential to self-publishing in NYC and worldwide.


We believe making books and publishing is for everyone! Our unique curriculum is rooted in our Booklyn Education Manual, which is a free-to-download manual collectively created by NYC-based teaching artists and public school educators over 20 years. We teach book and zine-making as a community-centered practice, one that builds social-emotional learning, and teaches skill development for the creation of self-determined storytelling.

No experience is necessary, but an interest in crafts, artmaking, or books goes a long way at Zine Camp! Questions? Email us at [email protected].

Zine Camp is made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature, and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the NY City Council.
