If you attended last month’s Fourth Friday’s event at 10 Carden, then you should know that we love to support local artists and authors. The city’s resident zinester will share her ideas on making collages, illustrations and writing in the zine format. Get crafty and walk away with your very own zine.
But what’s a zine?
Zines (pronounced ZEENS for all of you not ‘in the know’) are usually small booklets or mini magazines created for small scale circulation with the aim of self publication that were popular in the 1990s. They’re fun, made on a photocopier and relatively inexpensive to produce. All are welcome!
That’s great and all, but how much do I have to pay?
If you have some spare cash for a donation, that would be great! Sonali’s zines and some other stuff will also be available for sale. (Only cash payments will be accepted.)
Who’s hosting this event?
Sonali Menezes. She is currently studying Studio Art at the University of Guelph. She likes making things, going on long walks and cooking. She has a baby-scale business making resin jewellery, zines and other handmade stuff called GlitteringMagpiee. Her zines focus on mental health, poetry, and body positivity. You can stop by her etsy account here https://www.etsy.com/ca/shop/
Where is this shindig?
This event will be held at the Community Room at 10 Carden which is wheelchair accessible, however the washroom on the main floor is small and does not accommodate a mobility aid. The washroom is inclusive of all genders. Tea will be available at the event and a Guelph focused zine made by all attendees will be available for pick up from the 10 Carden front desk at a later date.
