Zine Workshop

Saturday 10 April, 12.30pm-2.30pm


Join artists Carla Adams and Joanne Richardson for this workshop exploring zine making and book binding techniques. The workshop is organised alongside Fold, Stitch & Staple, an exhibition library of DIY publications in the Paper Cut residency gallery curated by Adams and featuring zines by Richardson, among others.

All materials necessary for the workshop will be provided, including collage material, paper, needles and thread, but participants are also welcome to bring their own collage material.  


Carla Adams was born in Perth (1984) and graduated with first class honours from Curtin University in 2014. Her work incorporates sculpture, textiles, craft practices, painting, drawing, research and book-making to navigate the complexities of relationships from an embodied, female perspective. Adams’ work has been exhibited at Art Gallery of WA,  Turner Galleries, Bus Projects (Melbourne), FELTSpace (Adelaide), ARTBAR at The Museum of Contemporary Art (Sydney), Verge Gallery (Sydney) and Blindside (Melbourne). Adams’ work was selected for the 2013 Hatched National Graduate Exhibition at PICA; she was a finalist in the 2017 and 2020 Joondalup Invitation Art Awards.

Joanne Richardson creates drawings and sculptural works incorporating DIY methods and humble materials to create whimsical disruptions. Richardson’s PhD work (Curtin University 2017) titled: ‘Resolutely Inclusive: Merz Art Practice and Einfuhlung’ is long but has many pictures and explores art practice as activity, weaving links between everyday life and Art concerns. Currently works as a Sessional Academic in the school of Media Creative Arts and Social Inquiry, Curtin University, Perth, Western Australia.



Please note: due to Covid-19 safety precautions, registration is essential for this event and space is limited.
