On this full-day workshop, you’ll make a beautiful journal and learn about different approaches to writing for mindfulness and creativity from local artists Cass Barron and Julie Galante.
Bookbinder Cass will teach you to make a refillable leather-bound A5 journal that you’ll be able to customise to your own tastes. Writer Julie will walk us through some of the benefits of a regular journalling practice, as well as some writing exercises to try out various styles of journalling. We’ll talk about free writing, writing prompts, gratitude journalling, and more. We’ll also cover different ways you can use the booklets in your new journal to explore new ideas, organise your projects, and record your thoughts.
Both Cass and Julie will be on hand to answer questions and help you throughout the day. You’ll leave with a lovely personalised journal and inspiration for how to incorporate journalling into your life. The class size is kept small so that Cass and Julie can give you all the help and support you need to get the most from your day with us.
The price* includes access to all the equipment you will need, all materials, a buffet style lunch and refreshments. *PLEASE NOTE THIS PRICE IS PROVISIONAL AND WILL BE CONFIRMED SOON.
The Art of Journalling: 9 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 all materials unless stated otherwise, refreshments, and of course you take home all the unique products you have created.
All our experiences are also available to book as a private group email us for more information.
