Our free Mercado La Paloma workshop is kind of like a time capsule, but instead of encapsulating time (too easy), you’re going to encapsulate yourself.  After we go over the basics (awkward introductions, a brief zine history timeline, folding), we move onto the creative part…
Finally, we’ll be helping you with ideation–we know how strong  the pressure of the blank page can be. Our guiding theme for the workshop unites journal-style “perzines” with the altars that are traditionally constructed on the Day of the Dead in honor of loved ones who have passed on.  We’re calling it a Legacy Zine.  Think about who you are, what defines you, and how you hope people perceive you now.  Then consider that a legacy is a lifetime–since you are very much alive, this exercise is as much an exploration of the present as it is of your future!  What do you aim to accomplish in your lifetime?  What mark will you leave behind?  We encourage you to bring your own materials–pictures you’ve taken or work you’ve made, for example–to incorporate into your project and make it that much more personal.
Please RSVP to rsvp@cafam.org! They’re providing all the supplies so they need to know how much to bring so you don’t have to armwrestle someone for scissors.  For info and directions, consult the Facebook invite, please.
We’re excited to be working with Folk Art Everywhere and hope that you come out to this FREE workshop.  If you can’t make it, be sure to see all the great workshops that CAFAM and Folk Art Everywhere are bringing to you this fall–yarnbombing, Etsy craft night, and folk art tours of L.A. neighborhoods!
