Public programme - 17 Oct to 22 Nov

Our public programme is about to kick off!

We'll post a flyer for the programme soon, but for now you can find out more about some of our first events on our Facebook page:

So, first up: 

Build a paper city, in collaboration with other workshop attendees, using old books, envelopes and a touch of imagination, and get your story in front of Cuba Street shoppers. Your paper city will be put on display in the window of Matchbox Studios. Bring along your old books and envelopes, cutting and drawing materials provided.
Artwork is on display from Sun 19 Oct to Sun 2 Nov and will be available to pick up after this time.
Venue: Matchbox Studios, 166 Cuba Street
Date: Fri 17 Oct, 6pm (2hrs)

Thirteen-year-old Zora Patrick has been making zines for almost five years. In 2011 she won Wellington Zinefest’s ‘Best of the Fest’ trophy, and in 2012 was invited to the 2012 KOMACON (children’s comic competition) in Bucheon, Korea. Zora and her zine-making younger sisters Oki (9) and Dune (8), whose work was also recently included in the exhibition Small Press at RAMP Gallery in Hamilton, will be talking about ideas for zines, zine-making techniques, and presenting some of their favourite creations. This workshop aims to encourage children to participate in zine-making and introduce them to Wellington Zinefest, and will include a session of zine-making with materials provided by Wellington Zinefest and the Wellington City Library.
Venue: Wellington City Library, 65 Victoria Street
Date: Sat 18 Oct, 10.30am (1 ½ hrs)

Monoprinting is a fast and flexible way to introduce colour, design and expressive line-work into your zines. Try a range of monoprinting techniques that can easily be practised at home – no printing press or expensive paper required. Learn how to add spot colour to black and white covers and pages, create one-off or repeat prints and utilise patterns, lettering and stencils. Materials supplied, but bring along imagery and zine ideas for inspiration and different paper types to trial. And wear old clothes!
