Hi everyone! Thanks to everyone who came by our table at Pop shop Houston this past weekend; it was a great time. Now we’re getting geared up for two great events coming up soon, and in rapid succession to boot!
The first event is a zine showcase called For The Elephant: Houston Zine Jamboree
on Saturday, May 25 from 2-6pm at the Texas Art Asylum (1719 Live Oak, Houston, TX 77003)
. There will be high school students exhibiting their zine work as well as a bunch of other artists. Zine Fest Houston will have a booth there with all of our regular merchandise for sale/browsin’.
The following day, Sunday, May 26 from 2-5pm, we will be hosting a workshop titled Be Your Own Publisher! at the Inprint offices (1520 W. Main, Houston, TX 77006)
. For more information on Inprint, check out their website at www.inprinthouston.org
. This workshop will focus on introducing a variety of DIY publishing techniques and we will go over how to create a self-made book through a couple of hands-on exercises. We will be joined by John Pluecker, a writer, interpreter, translator and co-founder of the language justice and literary experimentation collaborative, Antena
. Optional materials to bring to the workshop include any personal writing and/or collage images, but we will provide basic supplies for the workshop such as paper, pens, glue sticks etc.
Also, due to a limited amount of space, we are kindly asking that you RSVP via email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to attend the workshop and if you plan on bringing a +1.
Saturday and Sunday May 11-12 Houston!
We’ll be there with zines, stickers, prints, and Houston!
If you are interested in volunteering and the opportunity to sell/distribute your work, just come by the Pop Shop and sit with us Houston!
