We will be partnering with Glasgow Zine Library to present a series of four workshops throughout the centenary year. The workshops will use the Edwin Morgan scrapbooks as a starting point for participants to create their own zines. Morgan’s scrapbooks were made throughout his life, and while he was not able to be open about his sexuality until later in life, the scrapbooks provided an outlet for his sexuality as well as a place to gather images, text and notes that fed in to his writing.
With this in mind, the zine workshops will look to zine making as a tool for the expression of identity, resistance to ‘otherness’ and mode of creative expression.
Workshops will be led by Saffa Khan of Tender Hands Press and will take place across multiple sites throughout 2020-2021, including the Glasgow Zine Fair.
