Art Journal Workshop

Want to create an amazing, elaborate art journal? At this practical school-holiday workshop, learn how to make your own journal with a master of the craft.

Asphyxia is a writer and illustrator, as well as a circus performer and puppeteer. She’s the creator of the Grimstone gothic kids books and she’s absolutely dedicated to her art journal.

At the Wheeler Centre in October, Asphyxia will explain how she uses her journal to record her daily experiences and observations, and how she makes her art journal a point of inspiration for her creative work. Participants will then get the chance to start, or build on, their own journals – mixing writing, collage and illustration. Bring your own journal, pens and photographs of friends, pets and family, or turn up with just your enthusiasm and bright ideas and we’ll provide the materials.

A great, immersive workshop for creative young people aged 11+.
