Saturday 21st, 28thJuly, 4thAugust, 11am – 2pm

The Showroom, 63 Penfold Street, London, NW8 8PQ

Part of Feminist Library on Loan at The Showroom. http://feministlibrary.co.uk/the-feminist-library-on-loan-at-the-showroom/

To register a place please email emma@feministlibrary.co.uk

This will be a small and fun group, participants will work with two artist facilitators, Eva Megias and Emma Thatcher, to look at various ways of telling stories of themselves and/or other women from the local area. There will be the chance to gain skills including writing, drawing, research, interviews, photography.

Material from the Feminist Library’s collection and local archives will be used to provide inspiration and teach about the history of self-publishing.

The group will work towards creating a small-press publication
reflecting lives of women in the area, past and present.
The resulting work will be put together in a publication
to be produced by risograph printing, a process traditionally implemented in self-and art-publishing.

Copies of the publication will be given to the participants. They will also remain for public use in Church St Library, The
Showroom Library, The Feminist Library and Bishopsgate Institute.

There will also be the chance to share the work with others at the final Community Party on 11th August.
