Combine your love of comics, crafting, and community organizing and join Vancouver artist Kathleen Gros to learn how to make zines! Learn about the history of zines from their origins in the 1930s to their flourishing in zine libraries throughout North America, and work with returning artist Kathleen Gros as she takes us through an introduction on how to make a zine of your very own. You’ll also get to know what tools and resources we have for you in our StoryLab facilities to support your creative endeavours! This program is appropriate for those brand new to zines and comic-making, and more seasoned artists are also welcome.

About the instructor: Kathleen Gros is a cartoonist living in Vancouver, BC. She is the creator behind the graphic novel Jo: An Adaptation of Little Women (Sort Of) (HarperCollins 2020). She graduated with a BFA in Illustration from Emily Carr University of Art and Design in 2015 & teaches comics in the Continuing Studies program at Langara. She is the current president of the Vancouver-based charitable organization, Cloudscape.
