Zine Recipe Heritage Workshop

13th December 2023

Artist Hannah Aspinall recently led a Recipe Zine-making workshop for our Heritage Youth Board.

For those unfamiliar, a zine is a small-circulation self-published work that typically features original or appropriated texts and images, often reproduced via a copy machine.

During the workshop, each young person selected a recipe close to their heart and spent time designing how it was going to be presented on the page using different materials and techniques (collaging, cutting and sticking) to present the recipes in a fun and artistic way.

The session saw the culmination of their efforts, with the completion of the zine’s design and the assembly of all individual creations into a collective zine.

In the words of one of our Heritage Youth Board members, “The heritage project has opened me up to new experiences I would never thought I would get from cooking, and zine making to photography. I love to see where the project will go in the future.​” Heritage Youth Board Member
