This event is part of our Past Programme

Come along and create three mini-zines* - two to keep, one to trade.

We'll start a short introduction to Shrimp Zine, followed by a short talk by Dilly Thain from TPG Bookshop about some of the zines we have in our bookshop, as well as things to think about when sequencing your zine. Then we'll move on get everyone making an 8-page zine. After this, participants can choose to create up to two 8-page through to a 32-page zines.

* Each zine is printed on A4 paper and trimmed down.

Things to bring

Bring your smart phone or tablet, loaded with the photos you want to choose from to make your zine. And bring your willingness to chat and trade a zine with another participant.

Please note: The Shrimp Zine platform works best with an iPhone or iPad, and on a Safari browser.

Things we will supply

We'll have A4 paper, one printer*, two trimmers and staplers. We'll be asking you to either Airdrop or email your finished digital zine.

* So there will be a queuing system!

About Shrimp Zine

SHRIMP ZINE is a mobile web app that offers an alternative entry point for the art of zine-making, exploring the possibilities of the digital and the physical coming into contact with one another whilst engaging in public discourse, and as a communal tool, offering the opportunity to put into the hands of the producer the power to tell their own story. By bridging the gap between traditional zine-making and mobile technology in a fun, engaging, and simple way, SHRIMP ZINE is designed as a free, accessible, and user-friendly platform that encourages young audiences to create, share and print their own zines, to foster creativity and to promote spontaneous production whilst on the go. It was developed by Andreas Laszlo Konrath.
