Write from the Art

Please join us for a writing and art workshop designed to help you tap into your own creative expression. Debra will show you how to create a one-of-a-kind, hand-sewn personal journal, and Laura will offer writing prompts to help you wrap words around your thoughts. If you think, “I’m not an artist,” or “I’m not a writer,” don’t let that stop you! If you can put words on paper, you can create a work of art that will please you for years to come.

Journal example 1When: Saturday, March 8, 2014, 9:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.

Cost: $85

What’s provided: Art materials, paper and pens, tea, and an afternoon snack.
