Gratitude Journals: Bookbinding Workshop with Kelly Laughlin of Odette Press

  • B. Willow 220 West 27th Street Baltimore, MD, 21211 United States (map)

Join Kelly Laughlin of Odette Press for an evening of bookbinding, reflection and meditation. How can gratitude writing shift our focus and bring more clarity and joy into our lives? In this class, we'll explore gratitude meditation, the how-to's of bookbinding, and the benefits of a daily writing practice -- three amazing tools we can use to stay grounded on the path of self-discovery. We'll start class with a guided visualization exercise, followed by creating two hand stitched journals, and a discussion on how exactly to fill up all that blank space. You'll walk away with two hand bound gratitude notebooks, a toolkit for making books outside of class, and the knowledge of maintaining a daily gratitude practice at home -- perfect for staying clear and grounded amidst a busy holiday season.

Keep both journals, or keep one and give one away! Ticket price includes all materials needed to make two notebooks in class, along with a take-home tool kit for creating your own journals at home. This class is perfect for anyone who is interested in bookbinding, journaling, meditation, or simply learning a new skill.
