We had a wonderful workshop yesterday at Richmond Art Gallery. Inspired by the gallery's current exhibition, Home Made Home by Germaine Koh, we created accordion folding zines about what home means to each of us.
Through mixed media and collage we expressed our own unique interpretations of home. We had a great turn out of enthusiastic artists!
I loved seeing how participants immediately began thinking outside the box, creating zines with 3-D pop up features:
This brilliant artist figured out how to join pages to create a giant zine!
Many participants used found imagery to create personal symbols for family members, meaningful places, and memories that connect to their experience of home:
I also brought along my collection of zines by many different artists for participants to browse and get inspired. Many people had never heard of a zine before and loved the diversity of amazing zines in my little library!
