Our mini zine workshop on December 9th was a lot of fun! Thanks to the Creativity Center for helping us get it all organized & making it happen! And thanks to everyone who showed up to make zines with us! We’re hoping to do more workshops in the future, so stay tuned for another zine workshop early on in the Spring 2014 semester.
As part of the Experiments in the Commons series of programs that the Creativity Center has been hosting, we are holding a lunch hour zine-making workshop on Monday, December 9th in the Airport Lounge. We’ll be giving a brief introduction to zines, showing examples from Hampshire’s zine collection & will then demonstrate how to make a mini-zine. Supplies & snacks will be provided! Please stop by! The workshop will be held from 12-1pm, & participants are encouraged to donate a completed copy of the zine to the zine collection afterwards!
A digital copy of the Sex-Ed Comic Zine that was created by participants of the Graphic Content: Transforming Sex Ed with Comics workshop at the library on April 6th, 2013 is available to Hampshire College community members on DSpace. The original print copy is available in the library’s archives – & is really big! It’s 16” x 20”, by far the largest zine we have!

Yes, the zine collection has finally moved down to the first floor of the library! The zines are now located in our new (to us) wooden bookshelf, which you can find between the Research Help & Media Services offices! Zines are boxed up in alphabetical order by title in lovely translucent plastic containers – which are also labeled to make it easier for you, the zine reader, to locate zines! However, we’re not done yet. Also coming soon:
- A nicer looking sign!
- New zines!
- & more!
