Saturday BookArts Workshop: Making and Using Junk Journals
Saturday, April 21, 1918, 12 Noon – 4:00 PM

Junk Journals are easy to make and, by definition, they use materials you already have: junk mail/envelopes, greeting cards, off-size scraps of paper from notebooks, posters, office supplies, maps, museum catalogs… images and textures that appeal to the artist.

We’ll explore the concept and use materials provided by the instructor to create a simple sewn-signature journal. The challenge of these journals lies in letting go of pre-conceived notions of what defines a “book” or “page.”
