Mini Book Workshop 2018 | Marcy Penner

Imagine a collection of all the tiny snippets of life that bring you happiness. Now imagine holding it in your hands and flipping through the pages any time you need a pick-me-up or a simple reminder that life is truly sweet. In this Mini Book Workshop, join Marcy Penner and create a one-of-a-kind mini album that’s sure to bring a smile to your face every time you open it. From your morning coffee to your favorite book to the flowers in your garden, record the random moments that make your life great in a handstitched book. With Marcy’s guidance, gather inspiration, curate your supplies, bind your album, and then get to work documenting your everyday delights using vellum, grid designs, and helpful prompts. At the end of this workshop, you’ll have a tangible album bursting with all the little details that bring you joy. All class content will be available August 20th!

Please note: This class originally ran in August of 2018. By enrolling now, you'll have access to all of the class material immediately and will be able to access the class message board to view previous comments. However, the message board and gallery will not be monitored by an instructor.
