Zine-making with Lee Tran Lam

School holiday workshop

These July school holidays, join 4A and Lee Tran for a special (and free!) zine-making workshop series at the Chinese Garden of Friendship.

In this workshop, participants will go on an adventure through the Chinese Garden of Friendship and visit in-house restaurant The Gardens by Lotus with Lee Tran. Capturing the journey with Polaroid pictures, participants will learn about what makes food fun and work with Lee Tran to turn this journey into a zine – a self-made magazine – that you can take home.

For participants aged between 6 to 15 years, accompanied by a responsible adult. All materials provided, with bookings online encouraged to ensure all participants get to complete their take-home artwork. Entry to all workshops in this series is free with entry to the Chinese Garden of Friendship.

Lee Tran Lam is a Sydney-based writer, radio producer, editor and creator who works across publishing, podcasting, zine making and much more. Lam has written for The Sydney Morning Herald, Gourmet Traveller, Time Out Sydney, Rolling Stone, Good Food Guide, Good Weekend, The Lifted Brow, The Big Issue and Turkish Vogue. She has worked full-time in editorial positions for 14 years – most recently as managing editor of Inside Out and a writer and producer at the Good Food website. Lam has been presenting Local Fidelity on FBi radio since 2007. In her spare time, she runs The Unbearable Lightness of Being Hungry blog and podcast. The blog was singled out as one of the city’s best in The Foodie’s Guide To Sydney and the podcast was picked as a Podcast We Love by SBS (and a Chef’s Favourite by Bon Appétit) and chosen to be archived by the National Library.
