Come and join us upstairs on Saturday 25th November from 3pm, where anyone can read, make zines, collaborate, be shown what a zine is and how to make one, work on an existing project, or ask more seasoned zine-makers any practical questions. Zines to read and materials will be provided, open to all!
This month we will be learning some basic binding techniques! Did you know that you have loads of other options to keep your zine together than a simple staple?
Come and find out how to saddle stitch, japanese bind and more. Plus we’ll be bringing along a selection of zines with some ace binding for you to take a browse through for inspiration.
Just come and have a nice hang out and a chat with us! Zines to read and materials will be provided, but feel free to bring along anything you might want to use or donate.
All welcome. Zine Club is FREE but donations will be very welcome to cover materials and to raise money for Partisan. Pop and (vegan friendly) snacks will be available.
About the Venue Partisan Collective is a community and arts venue, located a 5 minute walk from Victoria station. We encourage attendees to become a member if possible (prices are sliding-scale based on income) to help the future sustainability of the space: partisancollective.net/membership
Access: Partisan is unfortunately not currently wheelchair accessible. They are fundraising to make this happen in the future. Zine Club will take place on the 1st floor, which is accessed via a flight of stairs.
All toilets are gender-neutral, single-occupancy restrooms are available. The space will be alcohol-free for this session.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org for other access questions.
What’s a zine?
A zine (pronounced like maga-zine) is a self-made printed publication, often made cheaply, usually photocopied – but other printing methods can be used. They can be about anything, from politics to art to your favourite tv show. They can be hand made one-offs or printed in their hundreds. People can hand draw and copy and paste them, use a computer, or both, or anything inbetween. Even if you’ve never heard of them before, you’ve probably seen one and just didn’t know they had a special name. Anyone can make one, including you!
