Join me for Creative Journaling at Junket: Tossed & Found

IMG_0957

Earlier this year I began teaching a monthly Creative Journaling class at Junket: Tossed & Found, an antique and resale store in Minneapolis, MN. Junket not only offers an amazing selection of vintage and second-hand items, but also promotes creative thinking in how we reuse and repurpose materials by offering a wide variety of classes and workshops. I am honored and ecstatic to be a part of that creative team.

My classes are offered on the first Friday of every month from 5:30-7:00 pm (see the Upcoming Events tab for a full list of my classes). Each month I introduce a new creative journaling topic with an emphasis on reusing and repurposing both old and new materials we have in the world around us. There are still a few tickets available for this Friday’s class and they can be purchased by clicking here and selecting the option for the Creative Journaling class on Friday, November 3rd. I will also be teaching a special class on Friday, November 17th as part of the 5th Birthday Celebration for Junket.

I’ve developed a tradition with my classes and at the end of the night, I collect all the paper scraps left behind by participants and bring them home to make a collage for the 365-Day Project I’ve been working on. It’s a great way to remember the evening, the amazing conversations and the lessons I took away from the night. A sample of those collages can be seen at the top of this post and here:

I’d love to see you at an upcoming class! We always have a great group of people join us who are friendly, welcoming, supportive, encouraging and excited to learn and share ideas. If you have any questions about my classes or Junket, send me a message and I’d be happy to help answer them.

Thanks for stopping by!

Join me Monday at the Minnesota Center for Books Arts!

I’m excited to share that I will be the guest speaker on Monday, July 17th at the monthly meeting for the Visual Journaling Collective at the Minnesota Center for Books Arts. I’ll be sharing my story about The Found Art Walk, my passion for using found objects in my work and my current project: The Found Object Creativity Kits (if you’ve been following along on Instagram, then you may have heard about these. If not, I’ll be making an announcement here soon so stay tuned!) I will also be bringing a portion of my collection of found objects for people to try out. Bring your own journal to work in and I’ll provide the objects, paint and other tools. There is no cost for the meeting, it is free and open to the public (adults only, sorry, no children are allowed at these meetings). I hope to see you there!
