This was gifted to me by a friend. I didn't know much about zines and hadn't made one before. Honestly, it felt like a real treat! The kit you get is sweetly put together with everything you need to make a zine. I was a bit daunted at first but the instructions were super clear and encouraging. I found myself getting really into it! A thoughtful and wholesome gift in these materialistic times. Try it!

This was brilliantly organised and was a lot of fun to make. I made one with my daughter who included lots of her lovely memories which reminded both of us of happy times during our family lockdown. The Zines were easy to make and fun to decorate. Thank you!
Is this kit suitable for beginners?
No experience is necessary!
What age is this kit appropriate for?
Children can make great zines too! This kit simply contains some small parts and some complex folding instructions so it is probably more suitable for older children and adults.
How are you able to support my wellbeing?
It is important that people look after their own wellbeing in lots of different ways that include physical activity, yoga, mindfulness exercises and creativity. In this class we will be drawing upon memories that have positive associations to create our artwork. The resulting artwork will provide a memory aid about a time when we felt strong, supported and happy. The intention of this kit is that the skills of zine-making and the wellbeing prompts can be used in different moments and contexts to continue to support wellbeing as part of your wider wellbeing practice.
Are the contents of the kit environmentally friendly?
The Wellbeing Zine-making Kit includes handmade papers, sustainable wood tools and recycled and reusable materials!
