Capture the Past:Clear a Path to the Future

Ref: C2228668

Put down on paper your experiences of the past and your hopes for the future. Take time to have fun developing new skills whilst getting a sense of where you are, and where you want to be. We will be focusing on book construction techniques, using fibres and interlocking materials. You can reclaim found objects and materials to create your own narrative, by combining personal mementos, photographs, fragments of the past and new art work. You may choose to use creative text in your journal, but it is not essential. Relax and enjoy being creative with others.

Course aim

Create a visual Life Journal that captures moments from your past, or hopes for your future.
