cardiShorts 2 – Make a zine with Kassi

Kassi Grace loves zines.

She loves reading zines, making zines, collecting zines, selling zines, and discovering zines. And she wants you to love them too! That’s why Kassi also loves teaching zines. Prepare your A4 sheet of paper, sharp paper scissors, and favourite pens, and then check out Kassi’s cardiShort video below to find out how to make your first zine!

Just because we can’t be together doesn’t mean we have to stay apart – that’s why newCardigan is bringing you cardiShorts whilst we can’t run cardiParties. Of course, when we say ‘newCardigan’ we mean you – all the wonderful people who make up the newCardigan community! To feature in your very own cardiShort email hello@newcardigan.org and let us know your big idea! Our 10 minute Film School will help you to craft the perfect cardiShort video.

Thanks to Kassi for making this episode, and Andrew Kelly for post-production.


Quarantinis with Justini Episode 3

Andrew (no relation) and Jen shared an espresso martini this week, and as usual Justine has made an inspired book pairing choice. Check out Andrew’s cocktail shaking skills in the video!

To share your own quarantini, upload a brief (max 2 minutes) video of you making, drinking, and/or describing your favourite beverage, using this magic link, and make sure you remind us who you are!


Quarantinis with Justini – Episode 1

Welcome to the very first episode of Quarantinis with Justini – where we match your drinks with Justine Hanna’s reading recommendations.

Episode 1 features a smooth White Russian made by newCardigan’s very own Dude, Andrew Kelly. To pair with Andrew’s drink, Justine chooses… well, you’ll just have watch to find out!

To star in your very own episode of Quarantinis with Justini all you need to do is make a brief (less than 2 minute) video of you making, drinking, or describing your preferred drink (alcoholic or non-alcoholic) of choice – it doesn’t even need to be a cocktail. Then upload to this magic link. You don’t need any fancy equipment – a video off your smartphone is fine! Justine will select a book to pair with your drink, and we’ll take care of the music and titles. We can’t wait to see what you’re drinking!

And remember folks, this might take a while – so drink in moderation.

After all, you don’t want to run out.
