Two DIY publishers are on the road to share skills and facilitate a zine making workshop at Tamworth Regional Gallery these school holidays!
Tamworth Regional Gallery has invited Jeremy Staples; the creator of the ‘Bizoo’ zine and Elouise Quinlivan; journalist and ‘Bizoo’ editor to facilitate this exciting hands-on workshop! This zine making workshop is at Tamworth Regional Gallery on Friday 24th January from 10.30am-2.30pm. This workshop is aimed at students in years 3,4,5,6 &7 at school.
Cost is $30.00 per student. This includes all materials, but students will need to bring a paint shirt and their lunch.
What’s a zine? Zine is pronounced ‘zeen’, or like magazine without the ‘maga’ at the front.
Generally, it is a handmade publication (a book or mini magazine) devoted to specialised subject matter. “Once they're made, the zines can be copied and let loose on the community, as a moment-in-time snapshot of creativity.” Mr Staples said.
Workshop facilitators Staples and Quinlivan are eager to share their knowledge and skills, with participants using varied materials and equipment including old typewriters, stamps, a range of types of paper and much more!
Places in these workshops are limited, please contact Tamworth Regional Gallery for information or to make a booking. 6767 5227
