Take part in these zine-making workshops about our bodies and minds, and what it’s like to live in yours.

Use simple printmaking, mark-making, collage and cut-ups in this session led by artist Zara Carpenter. Zines are a DIY way to express what you think in an unfiltered personal publication and share it directly with other people. At the end of the workshop you will have copies of your zine to take away and share with friends and family.
