QUEER CREATIVES SPACE POP-UP

4 – 18 Sep 2022

QUEER CREATIVES SPACE- POP-UP

ABOUT:

Queer Creatives Space is a continuation of a group that gathered bi-weekly at Glitter Bean Cafe pre-pandemic. This group was for queer and trans folks with creative pursuits and interests to gather, create community and work on things together in a relaxed setting. 

This time around, we are trying to create more structure in the gatherings, while still keeping it relaxed. We will be running a low-key workshop for folks during each session. Participants are also welcome to work on their own projects, and use the studio time as they want. Materials for the workshop will be provided for free.

ACTIVITIES:

September 4th: Pamphlet Binding 

This relaxed workshop will show participants how to make a simple three hole pamphlet binding. These little books are great for small sketchbooks, travel notebooks, gifts and much more. This structure is a great beginner project for those looking to explore bookbinding.

September 18th: Eco Printing

This activity will show folks how to print and make impressions using natural materials such as flowers and leaves. We will do this by pressing the natural materials between paper and using an alum water mixture to react with the dyes in the natural materials. This project will require prints to be pressed and dry overnight, so folks will have to either pick up their projects another day or bring their projects home to dry. 

  

IMPORTANT DETAILS: 

We are offering two pop-up Queer Creatives Space meetups. One is on September 4th from 2-4pm and the second is on September 18th from 2-4pm (both are Sundays). Each session is in person and folks can attend both or just one session. This is not a two day workshop, but two separate pop-up Queer Creatives Space hang outs.

Pre-registration is required via our Google form. Please find the linked google form at https://forms.gle/7mtG1PyKQ5LiUb8Z6 or email queercreativesspace@gmail.com to register for both or one of the sessions.

There is unfortunately the limited capacity of 15 participants per session, and registration is first come first serve. Registration will close the day before each session at 11:59pm, or when registration has reached 15 participants. 

These pop-up gatherings are a closed space, that are for those who identify under the queer and/or trans umbrella. 

This event is all ages friendly.
