What we're about

Zines + Crafts is a meetup about people collaborating together on zines and doing crafts too.

Zines are about getting people together to present information or new viewpoints to the general public.

Crafts being adult-coloring sheets, or sketching or painting, etc. anything that you can bring with you that won’t damage tables or property (no fire-based arts/burnishing until we can sit outside in warmer weather).

For the old group that wanted to jam together, I created a Facebook group: Frostbite Jam

Join and get involved there! I honestly wanted to create a hybrid group about Jamming and crafts but it just seemed like it would be a lot of confusion for a single meetup.

Zines + Crafts will meet weekly at coffee shops around Minneapolis.

Are you disabled or have special needs? Do you need ADA compliant places? I will do my best to accommodate, but feel free to call ahead and let me know if I can help: 612-708-6672

Any questions, suggestions? Need directions? call/text me 24/7 at: 612 708-6672

Thanks for everything you do,
Cam

Let's plan and work on zines and crafts, any small craft or art project you can bring along is cool. We can also plan out bigger projects! Oooh, exciting! Do we want to do a group zine? How are we going about this? And who wants to do what? What about bigger ideas for this meet up group?? Critical mass!! Collaboration!! how do we want to organize the jam sessions? Do some jammers want to perform? Where and when with whom? Big thoughts: where do we want to take this group?? what about our lives? LETS BRAINSTORM!!! I'm bringing a big pad of paper and some wax pencils, craypas, etc. and we'll scribble and yelp out our ideas! This will be awesome! This is a weekly event: Come on over and help with planning events or projects, or just show up to bug me in person about whatever (if email/text/call isn't enough) and stay for zines and crafting free time!
