ZIG/ZAG/ZINES is running FREE zine-making workshops at Coleford Library throughout March 2024, as part of the FOD Fringe Festival.
These relaxed, drop-in workshops will take place every Friday afternoon from 1st to 22nd March 2024.
Come and find out more about zines, explore the ZIG/ZAG/ZINES collection (which includes lots of handmade/printed zines made by various independent creators from around the world, all related to neurodiversity, disability, and mental health), and have a go at making your own!
All our workshops are completely free and are run on a drop-in basis, so there’s no need to book. All materials/instructions will be provided.
*Zines (pronounced “zeens”) are independently produced, low/no-cost DIY publications. They can be about any subject and created in any style, typically within a format that allows fast, simple reproduction and small-scale distribution. They may be informative, creative, and/or subversive, and are often used by people from socially marginalised groups and communities to record and share ideas and stories.
ZIG/ZAG/ZINES is part of the ZIG/ZAG Project, a neurodivergent-led, collaborative, non-profit organisation that exists to encourage curiosity, creativity, and connection around neurodiversity.
Please note that some of the zines in our collection deal with adult themes such as sex, self-harm and trauma/distress.
