Zine Workshop with Lu Williams, Grrrl Zine Fair

  • The Old Waterworks Ltd. The Old Waterworks Essex (map)

The Grrrl Zine Library has a new home at the Old Waterworks. Come along to the first in a series of Zine Workshops in our new library space with Grrrl Zine Fair’s founder Lu Williams. Zine making with Grrrl Zine Fair is an adaptable way of making objects and literature outside of academic or capitalist endeavours. It is a way of elevating craft labour and democratised production in a context which is accessible to communities outside of the insular art world.

Zine making is a versatile process that can pull together ideas, encourage collaboration, function as a method of self care and act as a vehicle for accessibility.

Materials are provided during the workshop, however it is possible for participants to work with their own materials if they wish to bring them, such as their own artwork or writing. TOW’s risograph printer will also be available for participants to reproduce numerous copies of their zine or work collaboratively.


Lu William is an artist and founder of Grrrl Zine Fair. They founded Grrrl Zine Fair in 2015, which hosts zine workshops, Grrrl in Print (a printed collective zine) and a 300+ feminist zine library based at the Old Waterworks, which tours the UK and has been exhibited at British Film Institute, V&A Museum and Art Book in China, Beijing. Grrrl Zine Fair platforms women, trans and non-binary artists, putting diversity and accessibility at the forefront of their artistic practice.
