No Jobs in the Arts are collaborating with Alfreton Library and Make/Shift to host free zine making workshops imagining the future in Amber Valley.

The workshops will begin on 24th October and run until March 2024. The drop-in workshops are unique, each led by a different early-career creative, and are suitable for all ages.

Alfreton Library, Severn Square, Alfreton, Derbyshire, DE55 7BQ 

During the arty workshops, we will be making zines- a handmade leaflet or booklet - in response to the question, ‘What can we make together that will shift us towards better futures?’. The zines will be added to the brand-new zine shelf in Alfreton Library for everyone to see. Join the workshops to learn to make a zine and share your ideas for a more radical and creative future in the Amber Valley.


Workshops are drop-in style, so there’s no need to book tickets. Pop in whenever you like and stay for as long as feels right. All workshops will take place at Alfreton Library, Severn Square, Alfreton, Derbyshire, DE55 7BQ, except for a one-off online workshop. Alfreton Library has ramped access and on-site toilets, including a disabled toilet.
