SUMMER BLESSING: Creative Workshops and Market

Wellington Zinefest presents Summer Blessing: a full day of creativity to manifest a season of inspiration and abundance.

Summer Blessing is our last event of the year, a pagan / solstice / folk-themed day of workshops and a zine market.

Come along from 10am to take part in our creation stations. You can learn to press flowers, make badges, screen print and harness the power of the sun with cyanotype. These sessions are low key, no reservations and they’ll be running simultaneously.

At 1.00 as the sun is high we will have a small market where you can swap and buy zines, art and spells from local zine makers, get your image in ink from Arden and pull a card or two.
Our market runs until 5.

We welcome you with open sketchbooks and invite you to bring your best energy as we respectfully nod to the celestial factors that keep our ball of dirt spinning.

Feel free to wear your special occasion robes and BYO drinks, runes, tarot cards and talismans.

Saturday, 12 December 2020 10am to 5pm

At the Newtown Community Hall, corner of Daniell St and Constable St, Newtown (note this is not the Newtown Community Centre on Rintoul St!).

The Freedom Shop will be running a screen printing workshop - We will have screens and a variety of pre-cut stencils, ready for printing. If you have an old shirt or bag you'd like to print on - bring it! Otherwise we'll have blank tote bags you can buy and print on for cheap. Hands on workshop - stop by whenever you can and try screen printing.

Kid-friendly and fun!
