Holiday Program: Make a Junk Journal in a Day

July 7 @ 10:00 - 15:00

A Junk journal is a handmade book made up of recycled items such as papers from magazines, brochures, patterned paper, music sheets, envelopes, packaging, brown paper bags, maps, greeting cards, post cards, doilies, to name a few. The book covers can be made from cereal boxes, old book covers or any hard cardboards. One of my favourite ways to use a junk journal is by creating writing spots. I find old pieces of scrap paper or sheets off a notepad and glue them onto my pages. You can still see lots of the beautiful book page behind, but you also now have a really useful writing spot for your thoughts and memories.

Sunday 7 July – 10am to 3pm

My role is to support you and guide you in the creation of your piece, but a successful outcome depends primarily on you. There is no guarantee of a specific outcome.
