Junk Journaling

Make your own journal using recycled materials and personal mementos to embellish each page. Beginners and those with some experience are welcome to join this class to create a handmade book from cover to content! Ideal for gifts or personal use as a keepsake for materials that spark memories, inspiration and joy.


Do you have boxes and drawers full of items that are special to you but you don’t know what to do with and never really look at? Turn them into a work of art by creating a junk journal!

A junk journal is a book that is handmade from recycled materials and ephemera. Instead of discarding items from your everyday life, give them new meaning and purpose in this altered book. You will come away from this experience with a completed junk journal full of fun embellishments and surprising elements. You will also learn skills and techniques to continue making journals as a mindful activity, for crafting with friends, or to make a gift for someone that is tailored to include the things they love!

These journals are a wonderful way to showcase special moments, celebrate your favourite hobby, person or place and organise your loose items into a beautiful book. They are an excellent visual aid if you are learning a language, planning a holiday or keen to take your photo albums to the next level!

Journaling supplies will be provided, sourced locally from recycled materials.

Please bring along any photos or small mementos you may wish to include in your journal, scissors suitable for cutting paper, a ruler, a pen and a glue stick.  If you have a hole punch, stapler and coloured felt pens or pencils, you are welcome to bring these along as well.
