TINY VICTORIES

SUNDAY 14 OCTOBER, 12:30PM - 3PM

FREE, Booking essential via Eventbrite

Contact: tinyvictorieszine@gmail.com

To celebrate World Mental Health Day, join us for a zine-making workshop all about self-love, self-expression and mental health awareness. Sarah will be introducing the rad history of zine-making, sharing her own creative projects and helping you to make your very own zine!

There will be a zine library to encourage and inspire you, as well as the opportunity to buy other artists and makers’ zines to take home. The workshop is free to attend and is a great intro to the subversive power of DIY publishing!

Sarah Fox runs Tiny Victories Zine, a zine and illustration project promoting mental health and wellbeing. Sarah began the project in early 2018, as part of her own recovery from mental illness, and is part of an online community of artists and makers supporting recovery, positivity and the destigmatisation of mental illness.
