Our Selfies, Ourselves – Zine-making workshop for women
12.30 to 2.30pm, Digilab
16+, trans women and non-binary people welcome.
Fed up with the portrayal of women in the media? We’ll take matters into our own hands as we draw, cut, stick, stamp and collage our very own ‘zines’ with artist Nicky Arscott.
Zines (short for ‘magazines’) are hand-made or low-tech booklets and magazines with a creative, DIY feel. No experience or special talent is needed to make them!Nicky Arscott lives in Llanbrynmair and specialises in making poetry comics. She has exhibited at Aberystwyth Arts Centre, MOMA Machynlleth and Oriel Davies Newtown. She has an MA in Creative Writing and is one of the directors of Ennyn CIC, which promotes art and creativity in schools and communities. Nicky is a friendly and encouraging workshop leader.
This is one of three workshops for women for International Women’s Day. The other workshops are Sounding Off! (theatre) and Encore! (rock music). Don’t miss the evening event: ‘Our Voices, Our Lives’.
The International Women’s Day programme is organised in partnership by Aberration, Aberystwyth University and WEN Wales.
