Saturday, February 11th

Barb Vee is offering this workshop on Saturday, February 11, so that everyone can have an opportunity to create their own artistic journal! In this workshop, participants will create personalized covers, tear pages and bind them into artistic journals in which they can record their personal experiences. Participants will create unique and individual journals using a variety of techniques. Papers will be decorated to cover recycled book board and pages will be bound with a coordinating choice of colored linen threads so that the journals reflect everyone’s individual artistic nature. Barb will demonstrate several techniques for decorating and then participants will be set free to decorate paper which will ultimately become the journal covers. A variety of papers can be torn to use for pages, further individualizing journals. Journals will be bound using the Coptic stitch, which is one of the oldest bookbinding stitches. This binding allows the book to be laid open in a lay that easily allows creative journaling. Experience using needles is helpful but not necessary. All supplies are provided and lunch will be provided by The Coo.
