Explore the diverse Grrrl Zine Library and the making and history of zines with artist Lu Williams. Make zines and learn about printing methods and covers and creating content. From a form of self-care, a political tool, or an artwork navigating space, to a way of shining light on marginalised voices, learn how zines can create a culture that reflects you.
Schedule runs 10am - 4:30pm. Places limited, so early booking advised.
About Lu Williams and Grrrl Zine:
The intersections between Lu’s identities as a queer, working class woman, have greatly informed the artist’s work and socially orientated practice. She founded Grrrl ZineFair, comprised of live events, zine workshops, Grrrl In Print collective zine and a 300 publication strong feminist zine library which tours the UK. Grrrl Zine Fair platforms women, trans and non-binary artists, putting diversity and accessibility at the forefront of her artistic practice.
Grrrl Zine Fair is made up of live events, zine workshops, Grrrl In Print zine and a feminist zine library. It platforms women and non-binary artists and is comprised of a self-publishing fair, panel talks, performances, live music, exhibitions and workshops.
Zine making through Grrrl is presented as an adaptable way of making objects and literature outside of academic or capitalist endeavors. It is a way of elevating craft labour and democratised production in a context which is accessible to communities outside of the insular art world. Many of the zine workshops are with young women and queer people and focuses on building a culture which reflects them.
