Paper, Cloth & Junk Journal


4-Week Workshop, Mondays April 19-May 10
1:00-2:15 pm (PDT) / 4:00-5:15 pm (EDT)
Live Zoom Workshop
(Non-Zoomer option also available)

Join me in this LIVE online class where you can relax and have fun creating this unique project. Using both vintage and present-day ephemera (discarded materials), fabric scraps, found objects, and paints, we will create what is also referred to as a “Junk Journal.” We will also explore composition, placement, color schemes and more. This online class is a fun way to tap into your inner creativity while discovering artistic beauty in everyday materials. The final product is a hand-made book of your creation with each page containing an artistic collage of materials with richness and dimension. All levels of art experience welcome. Adults ages 18+

Below is a list of materials you will need for this class.

If you are unable to make any of the classes, no worries, I will be recording each session so they will be available for later viewing during the duration of the class, plus a week after the class has ended.

This class is available to take as a Non-Zoomer Option (See below for more information).

Non-Zoomer Option

Non-Zoomer Option
Do you feel overwhelmed by the thought of using Zoom? Don’t have a computer with video & audio? Or you just would prefer not to attend an online class live?
No worries. I realize that the whole tech stuff can be a huge learning curve for many and can be overwhelming. It’s more important to me that this class is available to everyone on different levels, so you have a Non-Zoomer Option to take this class.

Email Recordings: You don’t need to attend any of the Zoom classes LIVE, but instead you have the option to take the class by watching the recordings that will be emailed to you after each class has ended. You will receive all the same PDFs of lessons and instructions. You will also be able to email me with any questions about the project and techniques. Recordings will be available for viewing online for the duration of the class, plus a week after the last class has ended. 

“ I participated in Lisa’s Wabi Sabi class as a “Non-Zoomer” and for me it couldn’t have been more successful. I work from home in the company of two noisy dogs. Not a good prescription for a Zoom class. I found that participating as a Non-Zoomer, more than met my needs. I was able to enjoy each of the classes on my own time and at my own pace. 

Lisa’s communication skills in introducing the materials available to assemble our collages, and her demonstrations on how to apply the materials used, left no question unanswered.
The Wabi Sabi class was very inspirational and it was Lisa’s teaching skills that made it such a success. Thank You! – Patricia
