£75.00

 

This is a bespoke one – on – one workshop where you will work with Folium Press, experienced book and zine makers to create a series of up to 5 zines as an edition or individual unique mini books. In the spirit of zine making you can work with pre prepared templates leaving you free to experiment and test ideas with the knowledge of our experts on tap. With the options of hand stitching or stapling, bespoke covers, A4 or A5, your zine will be finished to the highest standards (max 32 pages). We’ve prepared a workshop to produce zines suitable for retail, portfolio work, as a template for that book you want to publish or as a beautiful way of collating your work. This course has two places.
