Side Project is a zine about making things, living a creative life and fitting it in around all that other stuff.
If you’ve ever admired another person’s creative skills but felt lost as to how to get there yourself, Side Project is here to help. Our zine and blog are brimming with craft projects, tutorials, inspiration and creative advice for the time-poor dabbler to the seasoned artisan.
We believe that no matter what your profession or daily routine, carving out time to create something beautiful for yourself is an important part of a balanced life. Take a break, have a cup of tea, flip through our zine and be inspired to start your own side project.
The driving force behind Side Project are three ladies who all love craft, design and art. They share a passion for creativity and have put this magazine together over lots of meetings with cake and cups of tea.
What’s a zine?
A zine (pronounced zeen) is short for magazine. Opinions vary, but generally zines are small circulation, self-published, and are produced more for self-expression and an alternative to traditional media than for profit.
Zines can run the gamut from small scrapbook style constructions to polished independent publications such as Side Project.
