Louise Bourgeois from Issue 7, Illustrated by Rachael Siddall @rachaelsiddall


Zines are small, paper booklets that document creativity, thoughts, information and anything else from personal issues or political discussions. Zines are often made as an outlet for creativity, as a network tool, and as a form of cultural resistance and political critique. 


Made by Women Workshops explore zine-making as a political tool in the women's liberation movement, with a

focus on women in the arts. We look at how zines have

been used by feminist and queer activists in the past and in the present day. The workshops have a focus on zine culture within women's art history and look at some

examples of zine-making as an artistic practise.


We provide materials to create your own zine, as well as a selection of feminist zines for participants to enjoy and take inspiration from throughout the workshop. 


Workshops can be tailored to your group/organisation's interests, and can be either 1-2 hours or full or half days. If you would like to know more, or book a workshop, then head to our contact page or please email us at info@madebywomen.co.uk
