About The Event

Come along to my Repurposed Book Workshop and take home a recrafted personalised book/journal.

In this workshop we will be using an old book, dismantling it, repairing it and recreating a new functional journal by adding decorative papers and pouches to create your very own new book. This journal is suitable for writing or drawing, or both - depending on the types of paper we will use in construction and the end result you are aiming for.

Once you have learnt the basics of this type of book construction you will them be able to re-create these wonderful recrafted books and journals yourself. No two books we produce on this day will be the same as I encourage each of you put your own creative stamp on each journal you produce.

Repurposing an older style of book and creating a useable and attractive journal in this workshop is a fabulous achievement - once these skills are mastered you will then have learnt the basics you will be able to repair, restore and repurpose any older style book. 

Class numbers are strictly limited as we will all need some working space. Most materials are included in your Workshop fee - however I do encourage my students to bring along certain decorative papers and ephemera that they would like to incorporate in the construction. I have envelopes, sheet music, tags, stamps etc, that you will be welcome to use.

5 - 6 maximum students per workshop.

Workshop Fee - $65 - some materials included.
