Zine Making Workshop in Stranraer

Young people of Stranraer! I’ve a zine making workshop coming up next month as part of the first ever Galloway Young Creatives Festival.

What is a zine? Self-published creative pamphlets or magazines, created using images, text, collage and much else besides. They are a unique platform for sharing your thoughts, ideas and inspirations with a DIY ethos. We will be working towards a collective zine, trying different techniques plus sharing tips and ideas for creating and circulating your own publications.

The workshop will run on Sunday 12th August from 3-5pm, and is suitable for anyone aged between 10 and 26.

Annan Lantern Parade Workshops

Yet another one of those side projects, last week featured a lot of children’s workshops, as over 70 children from 2 to 14 learned how to make paper lanterns for next weeks Christmas Light’s Switch On.

19 cubs on Tuesday (who knew how much noise 19 small folk could make? – I swear I was half deaf by the end), and something of a generation game time challenge, where speed became of the essence – although 19 lanterns in just over an hour ain’t bad, and they are the speediest tidies, a whirlwind of action took to the tables and wash basins. Brill wee kids.

Friday and Saturday we took over the Corner House, and they came throughout the afternoon. Every single child managed just fine with a helping hand or two, and there are a lot of beautiful lanterns ready to take to the streets next Friday. Four remain unclaimed, to Morgan and Casey Swallow, Eleanor, and William D.H. I’ll keep them until the switch on, better find me in the Bruce car park at 5.45 on Friday night if you want them back!

 

There were a great muster of volunteers over the weekend, thanks go to Fiona, Rosie, Maureen, mum, Don and of course Julie – who know doubt needs a lie down after this week!

Part two to follow after the parade on Friday. If you want to take part, bring your lantern to the Bruce Car Park for 5.45pm – I’ll have lights and rods on hand. If you want to watch, the parade starts at 6pm.
