Glow Up: Zine Workshop
23 November, 2019, 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Join in this creative workshop with Southend-based artist Lu Williams from Grrrl Zine Fair. Get hands-on and investigate health and beauty ideals promoted by social media and magazines. Reflect on diverse experiences and alternative uses of make-up and find out how grooming has been used for empowerment throughout history. ‘Glow Up’ is also an opportunity for you to learn how to make a zine (DIY magazine), take a look at the Grrrl Zine Library and discover zine culture and history.
The workshop will take place in the ‘Faces’ exhibition at Firstsite (more details below).
