3rd Spaces, Making Places, Mac & Cheese, Zines, & a Risograph Machine Named Barbara
Tuesday, January 24 | Doors open at 5:30 | Talk 6:00 – 7:00 p.m.
Kate Bingaman-Burt processes the pandemic by operating a very in-person and hands-on community risograph print shop called Outlet. In this Columbia Design League event, she shares how she coped with the stress and perhaps regressed by making zines and why finishing a sketchbook seemed to elude and even taunt her for the first 40 years of her life.
$15 / Free for CDL members and USC students
