Master Class in Personal Publications

Saturday, February 10, 10:00 am–5:00 pm
Brian McMullen
Writing Studio, 195 De Haro Street San Francisco

In this class you will conceptualize and make 20 copies of your very own multi-page, multi-color poster zine. Come ready to create something all-new from scratch, or bring in a text (or images, or both) that you’d like to turn into a publication. Anything goes, feel free to go nuts. Everybody will get hands-on with CCA’s new risograph printer, and the instructor will suggest prompts and bring in sample publications for inspiration. All necessary materials will be supplied, and no previous experience is required.
