Fresh Fruit Pop Up: Print Studio

Print Studio, 26 Jan, 2-5pm
Free, drop-in for 8-15 year olds
At Waverley Mall, 3/48 Waverley Bridge, Edinburgh, EH1 1BQ. Find us on the lower level, in between Anime Republic and New Look.

Fresh Fruit Pop Up is an open creative space for 8–15 year olds to drop-in, make art and chat to peers.

Why create one when you can create many? Come along to the studio and try your hand at printmaking. Learn how to make single elements to print again and again to form a background for a storyboard – a set of images that tell a story. Make unique one-off prints with mono-printing and multiple images with press printing – applying pressure to an inked surface to transfer an image to paper.

This is the third block of art workshops and artist Louise Fraser and Intern Brooke Milliken have been collecting your ideas about creative activities for the space. Studio Takeover responds to these ideas, exploring drawing; sculpture; printmaking; and a collaboration with Anime Republic focusing on anime – the animation style originating in Japan – and manga Japanese comic art.

Sessions take place in a new dedicated unit at Waverley Mall during The Fruitmarket Gallery’s building development. You’ll be supported to take over the space and develop ideas for creative programmes for young people in the new Fruitmarket building when it opens in 2020.

Fresh Fruit: Zine Making

FRESH FRUIT: ZINE MAKING

Saturdays 14, 21, 28 September and 5, 12, 19 October 2019, 2-4pm, various locations. Free. 15 places for 16-25 year olds.

A zine-making project about your experience of art and architecture, conceived as part of Fresh Fruit, The Fruitmarket Gallery’s peer-led programme for young adults aged 16-25. Zines are small self-made publications and can be about anything – what you did last week; the music or art you like; or political, personal and social issues. Quick and cheap to produce, they have a radical underground history where anything goes and different voices can be heard.

In collaboration with the Edinburgh Zine Library and Out of the Blueprint, you will design and produce a collective zine to be presented in The Fruitmarket Gallery bookshop.

In the context of The Fruitmarket Gallery’s building refurbishment in 2019-20, the programme includes visits to recently developed arts and cultural spaces in Edinburgh to look at their buildings and exhibition programmes. We’ll also take an exclusive peek at The Fruitmarket Gallery’s building development in progress.

Creative content for the zine is up to you. No prior experience is necessary and you’ll be supported to develop ideas and pursue your interests to make a collective publication that could include exhibition reviews, photography, doodles and creative writing. Roles on the project include design and production of the publication, so there’s something for everyone interested in writing, drawing, art, buildings and professionally producing work for public display.

The project takes place over six Saturday afternoons followed by a launch event, and you can come along to one or all of the sessions. Book in below.

The Edinburgh Zine Library is an archive and reference library of contemporary zines housed in Edinburgh Central Library. From feminism to trans culture to architecture and everyday experiences, the diverse collection has something for everyone. Led by artists from the Edinburgh Zine Library, this workshop helps you discover zines from the library’s collection and make your own. You’ll be set up with the tools to document your experiences on the visits programme that follows, and introduced to how to prep material for the risograph printing process for the final publication.
