Event Website

Join Quay Words and Laura Moseley, zine-maker and founder of Made by Women, for a day of fun, creative zine-making for 13-18 year olds during the half-term!

This is an opportunity for any young people with an interest in writing, crafts, art or any creative activity to explore zines. Zines are small, handmade booklets that act as a medium for you to share your interests and explore your creativity.

Laura will teach you all about what zines are and how to make your own through fun, easy activities to develop your skills and formulate your ideas. You will also have the opportunity to look through Laura’s extensive zine collection for inspiration and ideas, as well as working closely with Laura to develop your idea. You will be guided through every step of the process, so no previous experience with zines is necessary.

These workshops will offer you the opportunity to explore your own ideas, whilst being guided through some new ones, so if you are usually creative, or never at all, these workshops are suitable for you!

Please note: We aim to run this workshop in person at Exeter Custom House, Covid-19 safe measures and social distancing in place. If circumstances change the workshop will be moved online.

If you are under 18, you will need to get permission from a parent or guardian to make a booking.
The workshop days are free and take place on 31st May  and again on 1st June 10am-3.30pm. Content for each day will be the same so you need only book for one of the days.
