Many traditions have utilized the power of keeping a record, for the desire to account for the details of our lives is as old as handwriting itself! From documentation of personal practice to interactions with oneself, and observances of the natural or spiritual world. Ever looked through an old journal of your own, or perhaps even that of a loved one? You enter a fully different dimension. You see through old dates and inscriptions, sentiments, ideas, dreams, and recollections. The inner workings of all of the various contributors of personal history. As you lift it, its heft corroborates its importance. The rigid selection of recycled papers boldly announces that you are the proprietor of this journal. The sturdiness suggests that future generations will access and glean insight from your experiences contained within. Yet the practice of keeping and working with such journals is a lost art, overlooked within modernity, and all of the underwhelming mass-produced pages and digital diarists available at our fingertips.
Join artist and community herbalist Nathaniel Drake in an evening of magical crafting, to reinvigorate working with the hands, to impart potency into the thoughts and practices thereafter contained within the makings of your very own, completely unique, hand-made grimoire! Select your ideal pages to form into personalized chapters, make special cover boards and endpapers, and impart the finishing touches necessary to make it all the more favorable in your practice. All while simultaneously learning the history and basic techniques of bookbinding, alongside ritualistic methods and prompts for archive/journal work. Students will also be provided with a small toolkit containing the basic materials necessary to continue bookbinding outside of the classroom.
Finished books will measure approximately 9x6in.
All supplies are included in the class fee.
***Participants are more than welcome to bring along any with them special papers, photographs, collage material, etc. to incorporate into their creations! Although this is by no means a requirement, there will be an abundance of variety in papers and mediums for use in class.
