What is a zine? Find out with poet and artist Chris Timmins, as he leads you on a fun, friendly and completely free zine making workshop. Some materials will be provided but if you can find any old newspapers or magazines you don't mind cutting up, bring them along too!

There will also be a short talk on the history of zines within LGBT+ culture and how they've been used as a means for self-expression and finding community. All welcome! Tea, coffee and cold drinks will be provided, and Glasgow Zine Library has generously donated a collection of zines for you to have a look at.

Chris Timmins (he/him) is a poet and artist based in Glasgow. He has delivered zine making workshops all across Scotland to a variety of ages, and runs Plantbot Publishing, a small press which aims to empower and celebrate the work of young queer Scottish artists. His work has been featured in various publications including SPAM, Algia, Garzine, PITH and Glasgow University Magazine.
