Your teacher Cherie loves paper. She makes it, dyes it, decorates it, collects and repurposes it. In this class Cherie will introduce you to Junk Journals as you collate, decorate and bind your own soft cover journal.

In this class you’ll collate a soft-cover journal out of hand dyed and purposely distressed pages, giving your journal an old-fashioned quality. We will then design the covers using old-fashioned stamps and distressed inks and add vintage elements like stitching, lace, buttons and trinkets to make the journal a one-of-a-kind piece unique to you.

Then we’ll learn to bind our journal! The finished piece will be sturdy enough to use for a variety of creative mediums including writing, sketching, painting

All materials provided, just come and have a great time.

      Who will be teaching? 

      I have been in love with paper crafting ever since my friend made me some recycled paper stationery for Christmas back in the early 90’s. Since then I have been obsessed and have explored many  paper crafts from Papermaking, Journal & Photo Album Making and currently vintage paper crafts. I teach classes so to stay in touch, sign up to my Newsletter or follow me on Facebook / Instagram (links can be found on my website)
