Event description
The Grrrl Zine Library has a new home at the Old Waterworks. Come along to a zine workshop in our new library space.

About this Event

Zine making with Grrrl Zine Fair is an adaptable way of making objects and literature outside of academic or capitalist endeavours. It is a way of elevating craft labour and democratised production in a context which is accessible to communities outside of the insular art world.

Zine making is a versatile process that can pull together ideas, encourage collaboration, function as a method of self care and act as a vehicle for accessibility.

Materials are provided during the workshop, however it is possible for participants to work with their own materials if they wish to bring them, such as their own artwork or writing. TOW’s risograph printer will also be available for participants to reproduce numerous copies of their zine or work collaboratively.

Grrrl Zine Fair platforms women, trans and non-binary artists, putting diversity and accessibility at the forefront of their artistic practice.
