Create your own bullet journal with local artist Lou Davis.
Kickstart the new year by spending the day planning out and building a beautiful, bespoke, dot grid bullet journal that will provide you with artistic and productive inspiration throughout 2021.
By considering the basic idea of bullet journalling before setting up a journal for the year, we will ensure that you create a journal that will have pages to track the things that are important to you, and will provide year-long motivation.
We’ll share ideas on how to make your journal useful and beautiful, and each participant will create a personalised spiral bound dot grid journal, and will go away with a basic journalling kit of fine-liner pen, a brush marker pen and washi tape in their chosen colours.
We’ll be covering:
- Bullet journalling basics
- Creating spreads to motivate you throughout the year
- Setting up trackers for whatever you want to prioritise: exercise, health, reading, etc.
- Creating monthly and weekly pages
- Developing your own style
- Choosing monthly themes
- Creative lettering
- Decorating your journal
- Adding colour and highlights
- Fixing mistakes
We’ll be creating and personalising our own spiral bound journals, which allows us to practice on multiple pages and only include in the final journal those pages we are really happy with.
All the materials you’ll need to get started will be provided on the day and you’ll leave with a kit of essentials to keep you going after the workshop.
Please note that The Arienas Collective experiences are run from a first-floor space and unfortunately we do not have lift access.
Create a bespoke bullet journal: 4 January 2021 10am - 5pm
The Arienas Collective experiences are run from a supportive and welcoming home environment in the Edinburgh New Town. Spaces are limited to allow our artists and designer-makers to offer hands-on help and support. All equipment is provided and all the materials you will need (unless stated otherwise). Just turn up, leave any day-to-day worries behind, and immerse yourself in creating something unique.
Refreshment breaks are an important part of The Arienas Collective experiences. They are a time to socialise, make new friends and chat to the artists and designer-makers. We are fortunate to have a fantastic range of independent shops and producers nearby and are proud to feature locally sourced food and drinks.
The price includes welcome refreshments, and on our full day workshops we include a buffet style lunch. And of course you take home all the unique products you create.
All our experiences are also available to book as a private group, and most can be brought to you too. Please email us for more information.
