When we recognize all the things in our lives that we can be grateful for, our lives shift in profound ways. Co-taught by a writer and master bookmaker and artist, this workshop will combine multiple creative approaches to identifying and expressing gratitude. We will begin by making beautiful handmade books, focusing on an easy, hand-bound form. We will then transform the book into a cherished journal by embellishing the cover and then adding personal layers of meaning with words, collage, drawing and more within its pages. In the afternoon, we will be guided by writing prompts to get us us writing gratitude and watch as our writing allows grace to show up in our lives. Come with your curiosity, imagination and a few of your favorite papers! Take 10% off this class if you finalize your registration 3 or more weeks before the start date.
