Science of Zinemaking at Burke Library, Hamilton College
Apr 18 @ 11:00 am – 12:00 pm

Learn the process of making three different styles of zines, each out of a single piece of paper. Walk away with three ready-to-draw or write zine “dummies” and handy zine-styled instructions for each form. Cartoon Studies Adjunct Professor and freelance cartoonist Kori Michele Handwerker has drawn hundreds of pages of comics and printed dozens of weird little zines. Their work focuses on format, identity, mundanity, process, and queerness.

Everyone is welcome: K-12 and college students, teachers and faculty, families, and anyone in the community with a creative spirit. Free and open to the public but registration is required. Click here to register, call 315-853-2038, or email clinton@midyork.org.

This event is part of the Kirkland Zine Fest, for more information about this
and other events in the series please visit our website. This series is part of the
Being Human festival and is brought to you with funding from the National
Humanities Council.
