Join us for a 3 hour workshop you will to make a unique junk journal from new and recycled items.
This could be things like greetings cards, fabric scraps, old tickets, ribbons, packaging, envelopes, paper…any mixed media that can be cut and repurposed. Your junk journal will be perfect to use to collect keepsakes and the design will be full of pockets, pull outs and flaps for tucking little messages and mementos.
A junk journal is very personal and can be used like any other journal but is much more tactile visual and so much fun to make.
