Journal Making with Natural Materials

Explore the gentle practice of journal making using remnant fabrics and natural materials.

Jasmine Karis in partnership with Public Garden Solutions’, invites us to explore the gentle practice of journal making using remnant fabrics and natural materials.


She will introduce simple book binding and stitch methods, enabling participants to create their very own ‘Nature Journals’ which can then be decorated with a mixture of natural and nature inspired embellishments . We’ll celebrate and honour nature by acquiring knowledge around natural materials and processes, experimenting through stitch and tactile play and discussing how we can build a sustainable relationship with natural environments and local wildlife.


This workshop will be delivered at a consciously slow pace, allowing for deep connection with our inner creative energy and with nature.



Jasmine Karis is a textiles community-led artist, firmly rooted in creativity, community, nature and wellbeing.
