Connection Café: Create your own Zine

Join Residence Life in the Art Exchange to create your own Zine!

The Art Exchange is a great place to spend a lunch break, bring your friends, or meet someone new. Some of our Residents' Assistants will also be around to chat with if you needed any information or advice. 

These are weekly sessions on Wednesday from 12 - 3pm in the Art Exchange and are FREE of charge. All materials supplied so just turn up to have a go any time whilst we're open. 

This week come along and find out how to make your own Zine.

Artists Tom and Iris will be show you how to make your own mini publication, guiding you every step of the way. We’ve got some fantastic materials on hand – including Tom’s own cartoons of campus life – and you’ll be surprised how easy it is to get creative.

We also have the standard offer of arts and crafts supplies such as watercolour painting, colouring, and knitting and crochet supplies. 



The Art Exchange is accessible to wheelchair users.

All students are welcome to attend. If you have any additional needs please email us in advance (reslife@essex.ac.uk)  to discuss how we can make the sessions more accessible for you. Alternatively, if you prefer, please drop by one Wednesday to see how the session are run and discuss in person. We have RAs (student staff) working every week who are able to provide 121 support with the activities, if this is something you would like just let us know when you arrive.
