The OCAD U Library’s Learning Zone is presenting a new series of Zine Library workshops this semester. Join us for an introductory workshop to learn new techniques to apply to DIY publications. Basic materials are provided but you’re always welcome to bring fancy papers or other embellishments.
Workshops are available for free for all current OCAD U students thanks to generous funding from the First Generations program, administered by the Writing & Learning Centre.
Every year in December, book artists, printmakers, papermakers, and private press printers gather at OCAD to show their work and demonstrate their skills in OCAD's Central Hall and Printmaking studios. The university community and general public are welcome to come and watch artists at work making paper, printing from litho stones, screen printing, hand typesetting, book binding, wood engraving, etching and much more. Many items are available for sale, providing unique ideas for holiday gift giving. Admission is pay-what-you-can.
