This workshop is offered as part of Wear Experimenting, a project commissioned by The Cultural Spring and NEPN. Supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England. The Wear Experimenting exhibition is open at Mackie’s Corner on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 3-7pm, 8 November – 1 December.
Definition of zine. : magazine especially : a noncommercial homemade publication usually devoted to specialised and often unconventional subject matter.
During the workshop participants can create folded – stapled zines using printed photograms of sea-plastics, that were collected form a shoreline in Roker with participants during last months ‘accumulation’ workshop.
An experimental approach is encouraged to create simple pamphlets and concertina booklets. Large scale inkjet prints of the sea-plastic photograms can be cut into, folded, glued and collaged together – drawn over or written on. All materials to make the booklets will be provided, artist book examples and book making guides will be brought to help with ideas.
There will be an opportunity to display the zines, both at Mackie’s Corner and in an A5 perspex leaflet dispenser, within the coastal site where the plastic material was collected. Participants can add factual information to the zines, where they see fit, to highlight the detrimental impact that plastics have on the marine environment. For example, ‘8 Million Tonnes Of Plastic Is Dumped In the Sea Every Year’.
