Shef­field Zine Fest

Published Categorised as Zines No Comments on Shef­field Zine Fest

On Saturday I’m going up to Shef­field to visit my friends Chella and Sarah and also do a table/​talk at the Shef­field Zine Fest. It’s from 12-5 at the Elec­tric Works S1 2BJ. There will be around 30 differ­ent stalls, and a full sched­ule of free work­shops, includ­ing one from my friend Cath on femin­ism in zines.

Here’s the details of mine. Fairly basic stuff, but I’ve done it before, and people seem to really appre­ci­ate it.

Getting Star­ted With Zines- Emma Falcon­er 2pm

Have you ever wanted to make a zine but didn’t know where to start, or star­ted making one and aban­doned it for vari­ous reas­ons? The work­shop covers tips for getting star­ted, persever­ing with the project, over­com­ing common prob­lems and what to do with the zine when you’ve finished it. The talk aims to be non-prescript­ive, and show vari­ous differ­ent ways of approach­ing making a zine, and to deal with the attendees’ partic­u­lar wants and needs. Ques­tions and discus­sion very much encour­aged. Please note that the work­shop doesn’t include start­ing work on a zine there and then, it’s inten­ded more as a spring­board to start­ing your own work.
