This free online workshop has been created by Bookbinder Cass Barron and Writer/Artist Julie Galante as part of Book Week Scotland 2023 – it includes video instructions on how to make a simple fold and stitch pocket note book, or ‘noticing journal’, followed by an introduction to mindful journaling, with prompts to help you explore how writing can be used as a tool for mindfulness and creativity.
This workshop takes inspiration from this year’s Book Week Scotland theme of ‘Adventure’ by inviting you to go on a creative adventure with a needle, thread, paper and words to see where it takes you.
An in person version of this event will take place as part of Book Week Scotland in collaboration with The Heart of Newhaven – a an intergenerational community hub running from the former Victoria Primary School in Newhaven, Edinburgh. This in-person workshop is now fully booked but the hope is that this online resource will enable more people, like you, to take some time out to get creative and play with words this Book Week!
