Come & join us as we learn to journal creatively.  In this starter workshop, we will be finding your own unique style and create mixed media pages from scratch. We will make colourful and textured backgrounds with paints, inks, collage papers and mixed media.  We will explore composition, extending pages and other techniques to enhance your journal's flow.

Call it a sketchbook, a journal, a workbook, a think book, or simply a gathering together of things that you love, this workshop will encourage you to observe things around us in a different way. 

By the end of our session, we will have looked at visual journal samples, looked at ways of making our book and prepared our first few pages together so that you may continue in your own time.

Absolutely no experience is necessary, just a willingness to have a go.  You do not have to have kept any sort of diary or sketchbook but have an interest in seeing how it is done.

Bring a sketchbook/photo album/lovely old book that you find in a junkshop that you might like to make your own, or purchase one from us.

All art materials & refreshments are included.  £30pp

Only 8 spaces available
