It is now the end of an enjoyable four months spent leading zine-making workshops at the De La Warr Pavillion in Bexhill on Sea, East Sussex. During this period there were five workshops, open to the public on various Saturdays, where I and my assistant Marian guided participants of all ages to make their own zines and illustrations – see my previous blog entry.
Over this period I have been reporting on the results for each workshop on the De La Warr Pavillion’s own blog. Each session has been slightly different to the last, some busier than others, while some of the quieter sessions have ended up being super-productive with individuals and groups creating many paged finished zines, crammed full of great material all within the short three hour period of the workshop.
The range of work has been really impressive – some zine-sters were interested in writing content, others in drawing, while each session produced some exciting collage. Beyond explaining the basics of the workshop Marian and I encouraged each group to experiment with media, think about themes in their work and promote creativity.
