Handmade Journal Workshop
About the Workshop
A handmade journal is a special place to house your reflections, ideas, and visual or internal observations. In this 2 hour workshop you will learn the basics of bookbinding to create your own journal to take home. If there’s time we’ll also make an accordion folded book so you have the skills for creating two types of books.
About the instructor
Hyewon Grigoni has engaged in a variety of creative practices since childhood. Her work and writing have appeared in art shows, in print, and on air for public radio. She has taught art and art appreciation at the K-12 level, and her favorite discipline to teach for both kids and adults is Drawing 101 – aka the Art of Observing. Lately she focuses on daily sketching, portrait painting, and beginning carpentry.
Hyewon believes that art, like good writing or good religion, can comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable. Her work aims to achieve a little of both in equal measure.
She hopes attendees of DukeCreate workshops will enjoy a laid back, supportive environment to get away from their day and make stuff.
