For the last few months, students on the 2nd year BTEC in Art and Design at Marple Sixth Form College have been working together to make a zine. As part of the project we went over to do a talk on zines and DIY culture and loaned them some of the collection for inspiration. We’re now super excited to be hosting an exhibition of their work at the library!
The exhibition will be up in the library for the next couple of weeks, plus we’ll be taking some of the work with us to Northwest Zinefest at the end of the month. We’re hosting a little launch party on Thursday May 21st between 5pm and 7pm at the library. There’ll be some nice music on and you can come and have a chat with us, the students and their teacher. Here’s a link to the Facebook event for the launch.
The students have put together a blog to run alongside their project which you can have a look at here.
