Zine-making with Artizine UK
2021-10-06 18:00 to 2021-11-17 19:30
6th October 2021
Creative Wellbeing at GHT is a programme of art-based short courses designed to promote, reflect upon and build positive wellbeing and resilience whilst fostering a supportive, creative community.
Led by not-for-profit initiative Artizine UK, this Zine-Making for Wellbeing series will provide an opportunity to learn about the benefits behind zine-making and explore ways in which you can use it as a tool for restoring mindfulness in your daily life.
The Zine-Making for wellbeing short course is a programme of weekly classes delivered over four weeks.
Introduction to Zine-Making: 6th October 6pm – 7.30pm
In this session, you will learn how to make a zine using accessible folding techniques, explore layout and visualisation techniques and understand how to use zine-making as a tool to record feelings, release blocks, anxieties and train your mind to think more visually.
The Power of Collage: 20th October 6pm – 7.30pm
In zine-making, collage is a tactic and hyper-visual way of disseminating information, which opens the conscious mind to different ways of looking, understanding and organising our ‘inner landscape’. Explore a variety of collage techniques and discover ways of constructing stories from found materials and textures to create a new imagined world using only paper.
Abstraction & Mark-Making: 3rd November 6pm – 7.30pm
Zines don’t have to only employ methods of collaging and writing. In this session, we are going to tap into our creative intuition and investigate mark-making as a system of ‘languages’. Learn about asemic writing and other abstract methods of making zines to make connections between colours, shapes, the environment and your own feelings.
Accessible Book-Binding: 17th November 6pm – 7.30pm
In this session, you will learn how to make your own A5 book using a saddle stitch book-binding method whilst exploring ways in which you can integrate different papers and interactive elements to your notebook and reduce waste by recycling old paper into new, fun and personalised notebooks!
The full course fee is £50 and includes a materials pack.
