London College of Communication, UAL will host a series of creative and immersive workshops in the LCC Studio within Elephant & Castle’s shopping centre in the heart of Zone One. Guests can engage in the art of collage, moving image, photography and sculpture, with the end goal of creating a zine, a cumulation of all the community’s activity in the workshops.
The series splits itself into three cultural categories including Sport, DIY and Cookery, with each area hosting two workshops, run by artists Eleni Papazoglou, Sam Blackwood and Isabel Alsina-Reynolds respectively. The final zine will be showcased on London College of Communication’s very own launch night on 15th March, with a chance for the public to view the collaborative effort of the community to produce a cultural zine.
See below for all events within the A-Zine series taking place in Elephant & Castle:
