In this virtual workshop, Portland zine maker Sarah Mirk will show examples of inspiring zines from around the world. We'll fold a zine together and each create our own short zine about monuments (like statues and plaques) that we think the city needs. No special writing or drawing skills required, this is an all-ages workshop for novices up for trying something new. 

Here is the Zine Template for class. 

This workshop is open to people of all ages. RSVP on the IPRC Facebook page. . $20 suggested donation can be made on the IPRC *donate* page. No one turned away for lack of funds.  

This workshop is part of our collab with @portlandsundayparkways and Kaiser Permanente to create a city wide community zine called Portland’s Got Talent! This is the second class in the Zine series.  

Note: We’re accepting zine page submissions until 9/30! Workshop participation not required. Pages can be emailed to eao@iprc.org or sent via snail mail to the IPRC to be scanned.
