Journal Making      
  Using recycled paper, cereal boxes, corrugated cardboard, or old books--whatever we decide, I teach students to make creative journals. I teach children from 3rd grade up, and also give adult workshops. The complexity of the books made depend upon the length of the workshop. In schools, I offer both a 3 day and a 5 day workshop. For adults I offer 1, 2 and 3 day worshops. Techniques learned might include, paste paper, pamphlet sewings and several types of Coptic stitches.  

"Thank you so much for a great experience in your paste paper/coptic binding class. I learned so much from you AND from my classmates.

I've taken an exploring creativity class before, but this was so much more inspiring. Gathering material for the first class and preparing for the next two classes--thinking about the possibilities of what could be done in the book format--brought fun and play to my days.

And I love your energy--which is: just get in there and do it! It allowed me to break through my creative anxiety and make the discoveries that come when you are open to making a mess or a mistake. I don't think I have had my hand in this much paint since I was in elementary school.

Please keep in touch and I hope you have a wonderful holiday season."
Tonya Locke-- graphic designer and student in recent Journal making class

"The kids are still talking about their books!  They really loved making them.  I even had a teacher come back and ask me to show her how to make them."
