What you’ll do

Join us for an afternoon of workshops using letterpress printing equipment, where you’ll learn how to showcase your ideas through zine making.

What invention, achievement or idea will you be known for? In the first session you’ll use your future self as inspiration to create your own publication.

In the second session you will think up a dream project you’d like to work on, make plans for how you’d make it happen and use the printing press to create a zine to showcase your idea.

In both sessions you’ll make something you can take away with you.
