Members of the public and school pupils have turned their ideas into ink and published their own printed and bound Zines. Some are anthologies of poems developed in workshops with poet Andrew Graves. All participants experimented to great effect with image, layout, design and editing in Risograph printing workshops with Dizzy Ink. We hope you will agree the resulting exhibition of highly original Zines is stunning!
What is a Zine?
Zines are self-made and self-published magazines. They’re motivated by freedom of expression rather than profit, and are created using various techniques such as collage, drawing and writing. Often photocopied and hand stapled, their DIY aesthetic and self-directed content makes them an empowering and democratic medium.
Andrew Graves regularly performs his work throughout the UK. He has appeared on numerous TV and radio programmes and performed alongside Henry Normal, John Hegley and Sleaford Mods.
Dizzy Ink is an exciting Nottingham-based print studio which delivers design and print projects, workshops, events and exhibitions.
