About the Event

Join zine maker and zine librarian Lea Cooper to explore zines and zine making. Zines (pronounced to rhyme with beans) are DIY, self-published booklets, pamphlets or magazines. Zines have been made by lots of different people, at different times, for different reasons. They are used to share knowledge and experiences, build community, as a space for creativity, playfulness and experimentation, and as a form of political engagement and action.

In this workshop we’ll learn some different ways of creating zines from single sheets of A4 paper, and some basic digital zine making methods using free online tools. Drawing on Lea’s research into Wellcome Collection’s zines about health and illness, we’ll explore how zines have approached experiences of health, illness and disability. Then we’ll have a go making our own collaborative digital zine together.

Beforehand, why not check out some of the digital zines in the Sticky Institute's virtual zine library, and jot down any thoughts or questions you have!

You’ll need: several sheets of A4 paper, scissors, a glue stick, pens/pencils (whatever you have or like using!). If you’re able, use a laptop or desktop computer rather than a mobile phone or tablet.
