Join artist Chris Lego for a 2-day workshop on all things zines! Zines are a homemade, DIY publication often devoted to specialised and unconventional subject matter. You will be able to explore a collection of zines from Lismore and around the world, and then create your own!

Day one: explore a display a zines, and take part in a discussion on independently printed media, the history and culture of zines, why zines look how they do, why zines (a physical object) are important in a digital media world. You will start to create and collate your zine. 

Day two: continue creating and collating, print, make bespoke covers, and share your outcome.

Materials provided however we encourage you to personalise you zine by bringing your writing, photos, drawings, either printed or on a USB.

Chris Lego has been making his own zines for over 20 years, starting with Coughing Up Legomen when he was in his teens. Using mostly a cut and paste technique and found images, he has written about his adventures in parties, festivals and politics and distributed his writing and that of his friends across Australia and the world, in a sometimes sporadic and chaotic fashion. He also is an occasional DJ, part of the Noise Xhurch collective, runs the Lismore chapter of the Tough Guy Book Club, is a screen printer and makes art in a bunch of different mediums. His recent zine efforts have been Coughing Up Legomen: (#22)Tales from Lismore, Silt, his zine about the 2022 floods, and working with the 2480 Collective to put out the new Lismore Street Press: 2480.

The venue is wheelchair accessible. If you would like to discuss your access requirements prior to the event please get in touch with us on +61266274606 or linsey.gosper@lismore.nsw.gov.au
