Shy Bairns will be running a workshop using collage materials and a risograph printer, aiming to create a collaborative zine loosely based around themes of community and local identity.

Shy Bairns is multi-disciplinary collective specialising in DIY arts publications. Their first publication in their self titled series, The Only Pizza Shop Where I Live Burnt Down, was released December 2016, with a second,Where’s Your Coat You’re Going To Be Cold, following in April 2017. Both zines intended to gather northern creatives together on one platform, creating a community regardless of medium, level, background or theme. Other past projects involve curated shows at Caustic Coastal, Manchester and online @ isthisit.com, alongside zine making workshops ran for Middlesbrough Art Weekender 2017. Shy Bairns usually print in muti-coloured riso unless they absolutely can not do that then will reluctantly roll their eyes and print like normies. Shy Bairns consists of Erin BlamireIzzy KroeseGeorgia Gibson and Elle Haswell. All creatives involved can be found here.
