Bloomers Zine Making Workshop will provide participants with materials, inspiration and guidance as they make their very own zine. Bloomers Zine Stall will also feature over 100 independently made zines and publications from Irish and international artists.
Bloomers Zine Making Workshop is a fun and engaging way to gather, get creative and make your very own zine! A zine is typically a D.I.Y style booklet that can be on any topic you wish. Traditionally topics are niche, political or personal and poetic. So if you want to make a zine about your pet goldfish, your first break up, your garden, your imaginary friend or a list of your favourite sandwiches – Bloomers will help you achieve this goal!
Bloomers Zine Stall is a travelling collection of over 100 independently published zines made by Irish and some international artists. All zines that are part of this unique, curated selection are for sale. It also always includes Bloomers Magazine, an independently printed publication dedicated to the discussion of emerging female artists based in Ireland.
Founded in February 2018, Bloomers Magazine discusses the work of emerging female artists based in Ireland. Bloomers Collective collaborate with artists and writers to produce the bi-annual printed publication and deliver related talks, events and other projects including Bloomers Zine Stall. Our upcoming issue, Out of Body, is due to be released in Autumn 2019.
