To mark the final day of 'understated' join Shy Bairns for a special punk inspired zine workshop.


    FREE, booking essential

    Join Shy Bairns for a zine making workshop exploring punk zine-making techniques. Participants will work physically using traditional collage and DIY methods to explore the history of zine making within the punk scene and create their own individual zines. Materials will be provided but if you have any Pete Shelley/punk material or memorabilia you would like to include in your zine please bring it along - we'd love to see it!

    Shy Bairns is the collective practice of artists, designers and curators Izzy Kroese, George Gibson, Eleanor Haswell and Erin Blamire, based in Manchester. Since 2016, they have been working together on a responsive programme of zines, exhibitions and workshops. They use DIY publishing practices, utilising zines, print workshops and installations to invite audience participation and to create collaborative works.

    This workshop marks the final day of 'understated' at The Turnpike, an exhibition celebrating the creativity of Buzzcocks frontman the late Pete Shelley.
