Learn to make your own hand bound sketchbook which grows as you fill it...amazing! This fantastic book form is so much fun as it is very adaptable and easy to make and can be used as a sketchbook, journal or artist book. It's the perfect way to record the changing of the seasons, to celebrate warmth and wellbeing and mindfully collect and record.


It can be made in two easy ways, a finished book or built in lots of little sections which can slowly grow! Add pockets, fold out pages, and mini books inside it. Once you've made one you won't be able to stop and it's so easy to change the size, shape, content and covers that the possiblilites are endless and lots of fun!


What will you fill your book with? Secrets, spells, magical remedies, recipes, curious natural treasures? If you're stuck and need inspiration check out the other two workshops in this collection for some inspirational and magical creative solutions:
