// 2014 Kids Zine Making Workshop

Posted on December 16, 2014 by Zinefest Commitee

The Kids Zine Making Workshop that was held in conjunction with Auckland Central Library was a great success! We saw a good turnout and kids gave a go at making a zine about an original story of theirs. Many thanks to Tim and Amy for working with us on facilitating the session and to the parents who have brought their children to the workshop!  Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedintumblrmail

// Zine Market 2014

Posted on December 15, 2014 by Zinefest Commitee

Our main event, the Zine Market, was held at a new location - Auckland Old Folks Association Hall! It was snug and cozy, and we managed to fit more stall holders in this year. Not only that, we also had talks running throughout the afternoon to top off the day! Take a look at the beautiful zines and people below: As per usual, check out Facebook for more photos!Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedintumblrmail
