“Make a Zine” is a craft workshop developed by Craftspace for the SHOUT 2021 Festival.

Book online via Eventbrite.

SHOUT invite you to participate in an upcoming FREE workshop that supports intergenerational conversations within our community. This event is part of SHOUT’s efforts to develop a platform that focuses on bringing together people of different ages to share their life stories and is supported by Ageing Better LGBT Hub.

“Make a Zine” was originally designed by Craftspace and artist Seleena Laverne Daye for the Making for Change project. Zine-making is a widely appealing and accessible format often used for talking about identity. It incorporates writing, drawing, collage and stitch with the aim to develop a way to visually communicate one’s story and one’s experience. To see the previous iteration of the workshop click HERE.

Throughout this workshop, you will have a chance to make a Zine while sharing and talking about your experiences of the commonalities and differences in relation to the social and political changes that are affecting our LGBTQ+ community.

The Zines you create will be displayed in the Birmingham LGBT Centre.

This activity will be led by Jacob Monk who is a Lancashire born hand-weaver and textile artist now based in London. Jacob’s design process celebrates the history and craftsmanship that goes into making an ikat fabric, whilst using contrasting colour combinations to create contemporary artworks.

The event will take place at Birmingham LGBT Centre on 23rd October 2021 between 1:00 pm and 3:30 pm.

There is a limited amount of spaces available; make sure you book your ticket before attending!

Book online via Eventbrite.
