Reflection time...zine making

Join us in this relaxed session to make your own zine (a small, handmade paper booklet), in which you'll reflect on your experience of the Conference so far! Hosts will lead you through the simple folding process and provide prompts as inspiration. An opportunity to chat while crafting your own zine, the session provides a mindfulness moment at the end of a thought-provoking day! To wrap up, we'll ask you to share your zine and find out what has inspired you so far.

Materials required: all you need is a sheet of A4 paper that is blank on one side, and a pen or pencil. Scissors are not essential, and to make your zine more colourful, you can also use the following: coloured pens, coloured paper or card, glue, collage materials (e.g. old magazines, newspapers or photos), glitter, etc.

This session is an adaptation of a format used by the hosts to support young people to reflect on their learning in STEAM workshops - if you want to hear more, you can also attend their conference session!
