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 firstname.lastname@example.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.
Over a pint or two at the Park Hotel, a small but passionate group of new initiates and confirmed Zine lovers got together to have a bit of a crafternoon. This recording is of the round table discussion on why Zines are great, as well as issues about cataloguing these special items. We all got an opportunity to make our own Zine- some are discussed on the recording, but not all (as the batteries ran out). If you want to look at everyone’s efforts, then head to our Instagram!
