Jun Creative Journalling Workshop


Saturday 13th June, 10-4pm, £60

Join illustrator and lettering artist, Lucia Leyfield, as she teaches you how to create your own sketchbook and then enjoy the rest of the day filling it!

In the studio, you will begin with some very easy sketching and be taught the basics of line drawing with a watercolour wash which is really useful for an illustrated journal. You will then go on a 'sketch walk' around the local area, looking for inspiration and collectiong objects to inspire the afternoon.

Creating an illustrated journal is extremely liberating but throws up all sorts of creative problems which will be addressed with support and encouragement from Lucia.  There will be lots of tips on journal themes, illustration techniques (even if you don't draw!), as well as how to deal with ephemera and what to do if it all goes terribly wrong! For all levels of experience this workshop aims to encourage personal freedom and expression.

All materials included but please bring an old apron, comfortable shoes and a raincoat just in case! If you have disabilities, please be aware that this workshop includes a short walk from the Studios to gather materials for sketchbook inspiration.

We can accept other methods of payment, please get in touch if you would like to pay via bank transfer or cheque:
