Journaling takes many forms: a commonplace book of treasured quotes, sketches of the natural world, a record of travel, a place to give voice to the inner life of mind, heart, self-awareness and reflection. It can be a place to share a narrative, or spark and sustain a creative life, or simply give thanks. In this workshop, participants will go beyond writing to play with letters, color, words, shapes and images to design and lay out pages, crafting a look that is fresh, beautiful, original and evocative. Participants will engage in exercises that stimulate curiosity to wonder and ask and look at things in a new way.
