The experience of swimming over Ibiza’s posidonia meadows as a young girl with an overactive imagination in the late 1980’s – translated into a handbound, turkish fold zine-book…
Posidonia is where the mysteries of the deep, and the crises of modern times collide. As I write, Ibiza’s posidonia meadows are blooming abnormally, due to a summer submerged in too-warm seas. The hand-crafted zine book is a neutral ground where the autobiographic, the imagined, the impossible, the political, the philosophical, the unresolved and the unspoken can find form, and be beautiful in there.
*Posidonia* was the over-arching theme for our November session of *Zines, Hand-bound Books and Ibizan Culture*, hosted by vessel_rooftop_studio near Punta Galera, San Antonio. On Sunday 4th December we return to spend four hours exploring a new book-binding technique, and mulling over a new theme: *Yoga*. Symbol of Ibiza’s roaring spiritual wellness industry, and testament to the many hippies who brought oriental practices to the island via the overland trail from India…. but do yogis have a dark side? And on the quest for a yogic body, is it possible to also strive for yogic humour, sarcasm, imperfection and flaws?
Session #3 of our six month adventure is on Sunday 4th December, 11am-3pm with all materials and light lunch included, 45€.
DM to book, or to sign up for the digital version of any of our sessions, which includes a recorded video introduction to the monthly theme (by Joanna), a book-binding video tutorial (by Rachel), thematic visual resources to print and collage, and a materials list.
