SOLD OUT - Sat Aug 31: Layers & Threads (tm) Handmade Journals with Lindy
You’ve asked for it and I can’t wait to share with you… In this all-day workshop, I will guide you through all the steps to creating your very own Layers & Threads™ journal! These journals can be used for art-making or straight up journaling or some combination that just feels right to you.
We will discuss my process, what I consider when making choices on papers, colors, mark-making and more.
We will be using a sewing machine in this class, so it’s helpful if you have the basic understanding and skills to use a machine. We will be focusing on assembling the journals rather than ‘learning to sew’. You do NOT need to be a pro… just confident enough to run the machine… I’ll be with you every step of the way.
Bring along a bag lunch; I’ll have fresh fruit, cookies or brownies, hummus and pita chips. We will actually break for lunch while our covers dry.
At the end of the day you will have 2 journals to take home --- you get to decide whether to give or keep.
Because I want to be able to give everyone support and attention as you are making your journals I am limiting the number to just 5 seats. In this workshop, everyone will be assigned an individual machine to use during the class.
