Zine Making Evening

Hosted by Queer Diary

Grab a pritt-stick & join the Queer Diary team for an evening of nostalgia, crafting & chance to create your own personal Queer Teenage History Zine πŸŒˆπŸ“–

  • Design the teen mag you wish you’d read 🎨
  • Collage your fantasy prom-night πŸ’
  • Create a fanzine for your first crush ❀️‍πŸ”₯
  • Write a letter to your younger self πŸ’Œ
  • Draw a coming-of-age cartoon πŸ‘€

Or simply sit & doodle with a friendly queer crowd, to a throwback soundtrack Β πŸ’ΏπŸŽΆ

Bring your pals, your date, or come alone to meet some new friendly faces.

All crafting materials are provided by us:

Paper + pritt stick + scissors + felt-tips + gel pens + pencils + stencils Β πŸ–

+ a load of old teen mags to cut up & re-cycle into your own queer-tastic zine βœ‚οΈβœ‚οΈ

We also provide instruction (how to fold a basic zine) and ✨zine-spiration✨ in the form of some zines we’ve enjoyed, and some we’ve made before, along with a collaborative playlist, where you can add your own fave throwback tracks from your teenage years.

If you wanna use your own life as inspiration, we invite you to bring something you’ve kept from your past: a favourite object, a picture, a song, or treasured memory* to use as inspiration on turning them into a Queer-tastic Zine (this is not required – just if you want to!)

🎟 All tickets to this event are Pay What You Can – please choose the price-point that makes this event affordable for you.

Artfix cafe will be open for you to buy hot drinks, soft drinks, wine, beer, cocktails, and snacks β˜•οΈπŸ·

This event is brought to you by the team behind Queer Diary (the night where LGBTQIA+ adults read their teenage diaries on stage). Find out more about us here:
