Digital Collections: Printing workshop with Shy Bairns

Join Shy Bairns as they work with our Designers in Residence, Jamie Hudson and Orlando Lloyd, for a workshop as part of the exhibition, The House That Heals The Soul. This workshop will explore how digital matter on the internet are grouped into collections, be it through websites like YouTube, Instagram, or the photos saved on your phone. Workshop attendees should come with a smart phone, tablet or laptop, and Shy Bairns will work with them to print a collection. Alongside this, there will be smaller drawing and collage activities.

This workshop will teach you how to use you the processes and tools that go in to making small-run and DIY publications with this Northern zine collective. Participants are welcome to make an optional pay as you feel donation at the end of the workshop to cover material costs. At the end of the session you will have a publication or printed matter to take home. Copies will be kept and distributed by Shy Bairns, one copy will stay in the exhibition's growing library and the other will be for you to take home or distribute.

The House That Heals the Soul is both an exhibition and a functioning publishing studio. Its presentation at The Tetley coincides with the International Contemporary Artists’ Book Fair. See our website for more information.

Shy Bairns' self titled series includes work from anyone who calls the North ‘home'. Their first publication, The Only Pizza Shop Where I Live Burnt Down, was released December 2016, with a second, Where's Your Coat You're Going To Be Cold, following in April 2017. Both zines intended to gather northern creatives together on one platform, creating a community regardless of medium, level, background or theme. Their third zine of the series is on it's way. Other past projects involve curated shows at Caustic Coastal, Salford, and online @ isthisit.com, and zine making workshops ran for Middlesbrough Art Weekender 2017 and Pen Fight Distro in Manchester.
