Papergirl is an art project, founded in Berlin, which in the style of American paperboys distributes rolled art pieces by bike for free. Art is collected, exhibited, and then distributed on bicycles. We also host drink n’ draws, make zines, and this year we’re trying our hand at hosting workshops.

All our workshops are informal, suitable for beginners and offered on a pay-what-you-can basis. Anything we make will go back to the venues kindly hosting us and to the workshop leaders. We’re suggesting payment on a sliding scale (£2, £4, or £6) but no one will be turned away for lack of funds.

Our first workshop of the series is an introductory photography session on December 4th with Ailsa Fineron. Ailsa is a Bristol-based photographer with a particular interest in portraiture, people, mental illness, feminism, race, gender and sexuality & survival. She recently interned at Rife Magazine, is a regular contributor to gal-dem and GIRLS/CLUB and freelances alongside making coffee. See more of Ailsa’s work at her website:

For this workshop you will need to bring a camera, from a phone camera to a DSLR.


It’s free to RSVP. All PG workshops are pay-what-you-can (collection boxes at the door).
