Junk Journals Online

May 24, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm


An Online Workshop!

Tuesday, May 24, 6-9pm ET via Zoom

About this Workshop:

A “junk journal” is a handmade book created from many types of paper, often recycled materials like patterned papers, sheet music, envelopes, paper bags, maps, brochures, and more. In this workshop, you will take an old book and gather materials and other ephemera to create a unique journal that expresses your vision and style. Grab any drawings, stamps, stickers, and embellishments you like to personalize your very own junk journal!

Level: Beginner – no experience required

Registration closes May 19, 2022 to allow time for students to gather/purchase their materials. With your registration confirmation you’ll receive the full materials list (with helpful links) to purchase your items, any initial handouts about the process, as well as a quick 1-page “how-to” guide to using the Zoom video app.
