Container News is a new zine (self-published magazine) all about food, art and design, created by young people working with Turf Projects, an artist-run space within Croydon Arts Store.

20 young people from Croydon worked with Turf and a group of artists, designers and food producers to design and create their own zine to be published in print and online.

The group tried their hand at 3D printing, photography, writing and cooking workshops, working with CrOyster Mushrooms, and other Croydon food producers.

The first Container News workshops were:

Sat 16 Sept 2017 12-4pm // Left Overs, Waste Products and DIY with artist Holly Graham
Sat 14 Oct 2017 12-4pm // Food Carving, 3D Design and Printing with designer Bryan Oknyansky
Sat 18 Nov 2017 12-4pm // Rainbow Chapatis and Dough Text with artist Jasleen Kaur
Sat 8 Dec 2017 12-4pm // Zine Launch Party
