Zine printing workshop weekend

What you'll do

How do you spend your weekends? Flicking through the pages of your favourite zine while basking in the glory? How about getting the chance to make your very own double-sided zine? This two-day workshop has got you covered, because if there's no one thing we know, it's print is far from dead...

The zine resurgence is in full swing - you only have to pop into your local indie newsagent and gaze at all the new titles to see for yourself. Learn the ropes in this weekend zine printing workshop and join this creative crew.

This course will show you how to combine bookmaking with lithography. You'll use an offset press and photoplate lithography to create your zine. Discover how to set up a template and create an image. Learn how to expose a photoplate and how to transform your double-sided sheet into a printed eight page zine.

There's even the possibility of incorporating a cut-out element, depending on your design. This workshop is perfect for graphic designers and illustrators who want to get hands-on and print a zine the old fashioned way. The nostalgia is too tempting to resist!

Please note: You will automatically be booked in for the whole weekend when reserving your place.

Minimum fitness level required.
