HEY EVERYONE WE ARE GOING TO BE AT SWINDON ZINE FEST THIS WEEKEND AND I’M DOING A ZINE WORKSHOP THERE TOO!
Swindon Zine Fest 2018
Saturday at 13:00–17:00
Central Community Centre, Emlyn Square, SN1 5BP Swindon
Swindon will have its first zinefest on the 18th of August this year!
A zine (/’zi?n/ zeen; an abbreviation of fanzine, or magazine) is most commonly a small circulation self-published work of original or appropriated texts and images usually reproduced via photocopier.
We’ll be running workshops on various zine related activities, and hosting a wide range of stall holders selling zines, small press, comics and illustrations
Sophie Sherwood will be running a sun printing workshop, where you can create your own prints using solar activated paper. (Material cost donations)
Tessa Goodfellow will be running a ‘Self-publish your Photozine’ workshop where she asks that you ‘bring 6 – 10 images around the theme of ‘HOME’ that we can discuss how these might represent a feeling or tell a story. These can be phone images or physical photos. We will then define an aesthetic and explore the most practical route for them in order to create a zine.’ (Pay What You Can)
Vampire Sushi Distro will be running a make your own zine workshop.
For the full list of zine makers, small press, illustrators and comic book makers who will be exhibiting their work at Swindon Zine Fest, you can check out the posts on the Swindon Zine Fest pages (twitter / facebook / instagram) or click through to our website here.
