Journey to Journals
Judy Barrass
Saturday 28 May, 9.30am - 4pm
$75 artSynC members / $95 others (includes GST)

No knowledge of making books is necessary for this introductory workshop that covers some simple bookbinding techniques and the keeping of journals. Participants will construct several books, including a hard cover journal, and will explore various ways of recording experience. The skills learned can be used to create special and very personalised books as journals, albums, keepsakes, gifts, or works of art. The emphasis will be on developing creative approaches to the construction of journals and the recording of experience.

Judy Barrass works across a range of mediums from her studio in Noosa. Current practice includes works in paper; artist books; surface design and embellishment. Read our online profile of Judy at:
