Project – Zines!

A bespoke workshop to enthuse children to design, draw and create text for their own eight page zine. (sounds like zeen) Making zines is a deceptively simple way of engaging your children and making them artist, author, designer and publisher. They’ll learn about illustration, lettering, fonts and lettering.

(During the Pandemic, this could be a distance project with short zoom films and demonstrations)

Create a mini washing line exhibition! Or a mini library system or add zines together to create longer books!

I’ll bring examples of zines and other book art to enthuse and help them to create their own mini books. This workshop will also teach drawing, compositional, colour and lettering skills. I’ll talk to the children as a group and then work in small groups and one to one.

Zines can help lateral thinking and classification skills and inspire narrative writing.
