It’s been a while since I last taught a workshop. My first (and only) internship boss Arriane got me to help her teach the Photoshop portion of Blogworthy a few years ago and I loved it. So of course (of course of course) I said yes when AJ of Sunday Paper asked me if I want to do a zine workshop.
I’ve always been in love with publishing. I love the idea of putting your heart and soul on a piece of paper for everyone to see and experience. That’s why I created Stache in the first place.
We held the workshop at Common Room, Katipunan on a Sunday afternoon. How fitting. The class was fairly small but so full of energy. Definitely felt that while we were discussing One Direction and Game of Thrones.
I taught basic content planning for a mini zine. I didn’t really focus on the technical side of laying out because I wanted them to do their own thing. That’s what a zine is all about anyway.
But if you want me to teach layout or Photoshop, don’t hesitate to send me an email so I can work something out.
Overall, it was a great afternoon. We had a blast and a lot of laughs. I can’t wait to do this again!
