Simple Covers: Zines, Comics & Cards
Arts & DIY
Printmaking need not be labor-intensive technical process.
This workshop is developed around fun, simple processes that can be used for making covers for zines, comics, and chapbooks, as well as collages and cards. Dabblers will learn what to consider when choosing paper stock, and how to use everyday tools used like photocopies, blender markers, and rubber stamps to create compositions that can be repeated from cover to cover.
Additionally, Spudnik Press houses many fun tools like a hot foil press, type writer, and stencils that augment the aesthetic possibilities. Using a three-hole saddle stitch, students will assemble and print covers for a set of three books.
