Following the format of our previously sold-out zine make-shop, the workshop will guide you through some warm-up drawing exercises, introduce zine-making and zine-binding methods, and use expressive drawing and zine construction to reflect on our experiences during the coronavirus pandemic and to creatively imagine the future and the role of technology in sharing and connecting. We will develop and share our imagined futures through our, which will be supported by activities in meditative drawing, reflection, and interactive workshopping.

What you’ll need:

  • Paper and a pencil or pen (different colours if possible).

Optional extras:

  • Thread & needle (to bind your zine) , glue, tape, markers, post-its, scrap paper, collage materials.

The workshop requires no drawing or sewing experience. All are welcome.
