While the Victoria Park Village Pop Up Markets are on there will also be a Zine workshop on with Artist ZR Southcombe. Admission is FREE but numbers are limited so bookings are recommended.
All materials are supplied, and all ages are welcome.
Zines are basically small-run, self-published books/booklets with a strong DIY ethos. in this workshop, I’ll show you how to make a basic eight-page zine, and do simple stitch binding. You’ll get to see a whole range of zines that Zee has collected over the years and then get to have fun with scissors, glue and collage!
All ages are welcome, but children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult.
Admission is FREE but numbers are limited so bookings are recommended.
