About The Event

Materials and Information

Fill your sketchbook!!! Following on from the 'Make an Expanding Journal' workshop, during this class we will spend a couple of delightful hours pottering with paper! However, you don't need to have taken part in the book making workshop to get can add the projects to any sketchbook or turn them into little cards to send to friends.

With natural magic and the change of the seasons in mind we will explore filling the pages and pockets of your expanding journal with exciting, interactive elements as we cut, stick and paint a collection of mini projects on a magical theme! You might choose to connect with your inner 'hedge witch' or use the projects to add to your current sketchbook or journaling practice. They would work particularly well in a nature or garden journal.

All sorts of creative delights with appear from your enchanted finger tips! Join me on a mystical adventure exploring the elements, colour, constellations and magical words and remedies!

All experience levels welcome!
