Music Zine-Making Workshops

Coin-Operated Press presents this 2-hour zine-making workshop with a focus on making zines themed around music.

We have curated a playlist that you will listen to during the workshop to create a page in your zine inspired by the song that is playing at the time. Each workshop we do this month will have a different playlist, so do book on to more than one if you’d like to make a bunch of music zines!!

In this workshop, you will be creating an 8-page mini-zine folded from one sheet of paper to take home at the end!

We will provide all of the materials you will need to create your zine pages, but please feel free to bring some of your own collage materials from home – this may include: magazine pages, coloured paper, stickers, ribbons, washi tape, etc.

All experience levels are welcome.

Numbers are limited so please register here, and entry is on a sliding scale payment (cash or card) on the day, as follows:

Unemployed/low-income: £3

Employed: £6

Comfortable and keen: £12

Donations will help cover supplies and also help us to continue our work with zine-outreach and publishing the work of those who might not otherwise be published.

We also welcome you to donate any of your unwanted art and craft supplies to us for use in our workshops, as well as any old magazines or paper collage materials you want to save from the recycling bin!
