Saturday • November 3rd • 12:30 - 5:00PM

Take your journaling into another dimension

with a handmade, funky, vintage-feeling, upcycled paper bag ecojournal!

Design and create your own Eco Journal using recycled and earth-friendly materials. Learn basic bookbinding techniques and make one large journal ready to use in any of your creative endeavors.

In addition to basic bookbinding we will also explore more creative bookbinding techniques using magazine pages and found paper.

We will be experimenting with pages that unfurl and ways to create hidden elements in your journals.

PLUS: Plentiful time for doing some art journaling or creating a cover that day!

Check out Alice’s video, below, to see her finished ecojournal and a tour of an in-process journal! It’s super cool and you’ll be dying to make your own!

Pages from Alice's Eco Journal.
