All your zine-related questions will be answered at the workshop by visual artist Nevena Aleksovski, who will also direct us creatively in making our own zine. Helping us along the way will be the works of famous architect Jože Plečnik, as we will be using photographic details of his works while working in the collage technique. We will create new compositions and thus build new architectural worlds.
To participate in the workshop you will need:
- Prior skills? No.
- Special protective clothing? No.
- Materials and tools? No.
- Money? No.
- Creativity and good will? YES, and plenty of it!
We will also take care of your inspiration with a short visit of Plečnik's pristinely preserved home.
The workshop is directed to all young and adult creative minds (16+), and free to all participants. However, the number of participants is limited and applications are mandatory at email@example.com.
The workshop will take place at the Plečnik House, Karunova 4–6, on Saturday 23 September 2017, from 11.00 am to 2.00 pm.
