Liverpool-based artist Lo Tierney will lead this workshop and show you how to create your own zine, while a trade unionist will explain the basics of trade unions - then you’ll come away with your very own zine all about trade unions, what they’re for, why we need them, and why it is vital that we join and are active in our unions NOW! The workshop is ideal for people whose knowledge about trade unions is limited and want to learn more about trade unions. The workshop is also for people who are interested in art and want to make zines!
