Taught by Erica Cingle
You do not always need expensive materials to create beautiful journals. Recycled materials are an environmental and economical way to create unique books. This workshop will teach you how to transform recycle plastic bags, empty boxes, and old notebooks into one-of-a-kind journals. Techniques covered will be fusing plastic bags and basic pamphlet stitch binding.
