Online Activity for Families: Surimono Zines

Celebrate Cruinniú na nÓg and create and 8-page zine inspired by the beautiful Japanese surimono prints in the Chester Beatty collections. Surimono prints combine poetry and images. They were made in small numbers by poetry clubs and shared among friends, much like contemporary zines. Why not post your finished zine to a friend? In this video workshop we will be folding, cutting, sticking, drawing and writing. Hope to see you there!

The video will be available here from 10am on June 12.

Cruinniú na nÓg is Ireland’s national day of creativity encouraging children to get creative, develop an appetite for discovery, and acquire new skills. Take part in a variety of events designed by the Chester Beatty to express your individuality and creativity. From storytelling to arts and crafts activities, to baking, there will be something for all abilities and ages.
