Have you ever wanted to learn how to make your own writer’s journal? Then this class is for you! You will get the chance to learn the process of Japanese poke binding by creating a soft cover writer’s journal from start to finish during this workshop. No prior knowledge needed, just bring yourself, and a love for all things paper!
Since we’re doing this at home, you’ll need to bring the supplies to make it work. Here are a few things you’ll need:
Some paper: we can work with any size shape or color!
Some Cover Material: cereal boxes work great! You can also use fabric or anything else that you can think of!
A needle: Sewing needles will work great!
Some thread: Have a sewing kit?
Something sharp: a nail would work, or a kabob skewer to poke holes in your paper.
