We’ve created a little zine making space in the loft where we make Slingshot. If you’re looking for a place to make your zine in the Bay Area, the Slingshot zine loft has everything you need for (non-computerized) cut and paste layout and design. We have a typewriter, copy machine, box of graphics, paper, saddle stapler, pens, scissors, light table, and razor blades. (The copy machine is for making graphics — once you make your original in the loft, you need to take it to a copy shop to make copies of your zine. Then you can staple it in the loft.)
The loft is open during Infoshop hours Monday – Thursday 6-9, Saturday 3-6 and Sunday 3-11 at Long Haul: 3124 Shattuck Ave. Berkeley — just 2 blocks from the Ashby BART station. We’re going to have a zine-making workshop on February 23rd at 2:00 PM. Drop by to learn everything Slingshot knows about making a zine, i.e. the workshop will only last about an hour! We’re also willing to schedule a zine-making workshop for your organization or for schools, youth groups, etc. — contact us.
