Publication: Zine Workshop

According to Stolen Sharpie Revolution, "a Zine is an independently created publication. The contents are anything you want them to be; personal experiences and stories, political ideologies, music related writings, gardening tips, travel stories, comics, photography, or anything you like. Zines can be produced by one person or a group of people and they are usually photocopied."

Feed and Libro Books are presenting a zine making workshop on the evening of October 15 at Libro Bookstore in the new Towne Mall at the Majestic Centre. We'll go over the history of the zine and mini-comic scene, and cover a few of the most common methods of layout and binding. Together, we'll work on creating a collaborative zine to be published by Feed and offered for sale at Libro.
    We'll provide:
  • Supplies needed for designing a zine layout: paper, scissors, markers, stencils, staplers etc.
  • Publishing and marketing
  • Music and snacks
  • A copy of the finished zine for each participant
    You provide:
  • Found images for creating collage pages
  • Cool ideas
So here are the details
What: Publication
When: October 15th, 6:30 p.m.
Where: Libro Bookstore, 150 N Schuyler - Lower Level, Kankakee, IL

Fall Arts Stroll

We're planning to set up at this year's Fall Arts Stroll organized by the Community Arts Council and our friends at the Kankakee Events Partnership. Everything is happening between 11:00 and 4:00 this Sunday, September 19th on the 100 blocks of North and South Schuyler Avenue, on either side of Court Street. The event this year should be a lot bigger than in the past, with over 70 artists, vendors and entertainers. In addition, there will be a bunch of demonstrations by area craftspeople at the Downtown Depot. Hopefully, you'll stop by to take part in the festivities and check out the Feed Team at our booth.
