Join Mind Waves for our latest skills workshop, looking at how to make zines to share and explore stories and advice on mental health and wellbeing. Zines are simple, home-made magazines used to share ideas.
Our latest free, practical workshop is open to anyone with an interest in mental wellbeing, whether you have lived experience, you are a carer or your work or volunteering is related to mental health.
At this workshop you’ll learn how to create zines using just an A4 piece of paper and some scissors. We will look at:
• What is a zine? Some examples of zines.
• Folding and structuring a mini zine.
• Expressing yourself in a zine – words, pictures, collage.
• Reproducing your zine and sharing your message.
This workshop will be led by Sarah Cochrane. Sarah makes zines, comics and illustrations. She has varied experience working in the third sector, both in communications and in communities. She likes making mini zines because they are an incredibly simple way to get your ideas into other people’s hands.
