For this week’s #4pmWithBeavertown, grab your pens, paper and guerrilla spirit and join Beavertown at 4pm for a crafter-noon with artist Lu Williams of queer zine collective, GRRRL Zine Fair. This week – if you’re keen – it’s time to make your very own zine!
No idea what a zine is? Don’t worry, Lu will be on Beavertown’s Instagram Live teaching you what a zine is, including how to make one, how to self-publish your own work and all about DIY culture. The session will be accompanied by a freshly opened beer, of course – and there will be a Q&A session at the end for any quaran-zine related queries.
Here’s what you’ll need: paper (A4 or A3 is best); glue, tape, or anything sticky; something to draw or write with; scissors; old newspapers or magazines to cut up.
I would LOVE for you to all join me for a beer over on @BeavertownBeer Instagram Live at 4pm Friday ☺️🍻
✏️In 30mins I’ll be showing you easy zine making tricks, some of the Grrrl Zine Library collection & answering your self publishing questions.
Hope to see you there! 😊🙌 pic.twitter.com/q1w4K0NFrp
