Junk Journal: No Rhyme or Reason


with Helenka Ralston

Calendar Next available session starts Oct 8, 2022 at 10:30 am, runs for 4 weeks

What is a junk journal? Essentially, a junk journal is a handmade book created from a variety of papers, and embellishments. It can include personal memorabilia, photos, mixed media, washi tape, stamping, and recycled cards, to name a few. 

Junk journaling is a great means of using all those collected cards and memorabilia! These journals can be done in random fashion or incorporated into themes such as friendship, travel, birthdays, anniversaries and memories. 

We will begin our 2 ring bound junk journal, and have fun layering the pages to create an eclectic —no rhyme or reason —one of a kind creation! Plan to enjoy a light- hearted and creative class where your junk is uniquely you. No experience is needed, and beginners are welcome.

Member discount: 15%. Supply fee: $20.

An additional $20 supply fee will be due to the teacher on the first day of class.
