Hands on Creative Publishing Workshops

Tuesday 3 July 10am - 12.30pm Cut Copy P&ste Zine Workshop Ages 10 and over $15

Each participant will walk away with their very own zine, backed up with an understanding of what a zine is, and how to distribute and publish them. Participants will be empowered through this analogue outlet of expression using a range of tools such as typewriters, stamp sets, as well as old-fashioned scissors and glue. What is a ZINE?? Think of it as a magazine but without the ‘Maga’ out front. ‘Maga’ isn’t the only thing missing from a zine. Zines are the little brothers and sisters of magazines; they aren’t glossy and found in newsagents. Zines are made by people like you and me, who have something to say or share on any topic imaginable. Zines are the perfect tool to build and support community, as well as a great voice for the voiceless. Poets and visual artists have also taken a liking to zines as a cheap and unique way to showcase their work.

Tuesday 3 July 5.30pm - 8.30pm Jumpers & Jazz in July Zine Workshop Adults only $15

Perfect timing for our beloved winter festival. We are going to create a zine with the theme “I love to yarn - stories of community, friendship and collaboration”. Individuals will create a page each that will be published and distributed during this year’s Jumpers & Jazz in July festival 19 to 29 July 2018. A fun, relaxing and easy activity for anyone who loves Jumpers & Jazz in July.

Wednesday 4 July 10am - 12.30pm Create, Cut, Flash and Print it Printmaking Workshop Limited places $50

Each participant will walk away with either a collaborative or individual Gocco print artwork as well as an understanding of the printing process. Gocco printing has become hugely popular with printmakers and other creatives, as it provides the ability to produce ‘one-of-a-kind’, detailed images which are used in everything from artist books to more mainstream products such as wedding invitations. What is Gocco? Gocco printing originated in Japan and is a mix of traditional screen printing and pressure printing, but without the mess usually associated with screen printing. It is extremely portable and was popular with young people in the 1970s. Gocco printing is in the midst of a revival thanks to the ‘Do-It-Yourself’ philosophy and the ability to print your own images on the spot.
