Drop-in workshop: Zines & artist’s books with simple bookbinding

January 21 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

The last in a series of four drop-in creative workshop days, looking at ways to create DIY publications and explore self-expression.

This workshop offers a chance to try out, practice, or combine skills from our previous workshops in the series, working on a theme of living with invisible illness. Try writing about your experiences, express your ideas with simple printmaking techniques, drawing, or collage and create your own zine, or bind your pages as a pamphlet or artist’s book.

The workshops are open to Medway residents 16+ years old who are affected by invisible illness – those with illnesses themselves, but also carers, partners, friends or family etc. living in the Medway towns. The sessions are offered free thanks to a small grant from Involving Medway, as part of Medway Clinical Commissioning Group’s work with community health.

Taking place during December and January, a time of year that people with illness can find difficult, these workshops offer a non-festive oasis and a supportive, uplifting space to explore self-reflection and creative skills. There will be a friendly welcome, snacks and refreshments.

You don’t need to have attended previous days, each class and drop-in session is a separate event and you are welcome to attend as many or few as you like.

No previous experience is needed, this is a supportive session for you to self-reflect and try out making DIY publications as a way to cope with, heal from, or understand your situation in a different way. Participating may lead to communicating your feelings to other people, or may offer useful tools to use privately for self care.

A two-hour morning book binding class complements this drop-in session – please book in advance if you are interested in that too. The link is a pinned post on the Sick! Facebook group page.
