Fat Zines for Fat People

March 26 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

$5 – $20

A workshop on zine making for folks who are (or are trying to be) body-positive (or neutral!)

Explore: What do these concepts mean to you? What do you do in your day-to-day life to survive a body-negative world? How do you fold a minizine??

Work with visiting artist and zine lover Theo Houghtaling in this low-pressure evening of discussion and creation

Facilitator bio: Theo Houghtaling is an emerging interdisciplinary artist based in Treaty 4 Swift Current, Saskatchewan. He’s fat and queer and trans and neurodivergent (so basically the total package).

His zine “Fat Kid at McDonald’s” was recently shortlisted for Best Perzine at the Broken Pencil Magazine International Zine Awards (yay!)

To see some of his work and/or say hi, go to Instagram @theojparker

Masks required, HEPA filter running. The warehouse is all on one level and the bathroom is accessible. There is a small step at the front door and a portable ramp will be in place.

This workshop is in person in Ottawa. If you have questions or specific access needs, please reach out to Jamie at jamie@venusenvy.ca as soon as possible.
