From learning how to make your own handmade book to trying out print and journalling techniques you will begin to fill your own book with ideas such as key events in family life, career, village life, the gardening year, dreams for the future, or dates in history that have some special meaning.

There will be pages with pockets so small items can be stored ie photos, bus tickets, luggage labels etc

Each step of the way you will be guided by the artists.
