Find out more about membership here.

In this all-day workshop, we will attempt to define what a ‘zine is – by discussing provided examples, personal impressions, and the heritage of the medium – before sharing techniques and settling into guided production of our own zines!  At the end of the workshop, we will have an informal sharing of our works. 

There will be an emphasis on how photography and zines work together, but this workshop is not limited to photographers.  Collaborations and group works are welcome and encouraged!

Meet Your Instructor 
Trevor Clement is a Syracuse, NY-based visual artist, musician, and performance artist. His photographic and visual art has been shown at Visual Studies Workshop in Rochester, the Spark Art Gallery in Syracuse, and at the NoFound Photo Fair in Paris, France. Recent efforts have been focused on producing ‘zines and artist books, musical endeavors, and the administrative maintenance of BADLANDS, an all-ages, DIY art and music space in Syracuse. Over the past seven years, Clement has performed in various hardcore-punk/noise groups across the greater eastern half of the country. The do-it-yourself ethic, the antisocial, violent, and anti-capitalist character of noise and hardcore-punk music all play a major role in Clement’s thinking about visual art.
