In this fun new class you’ll learn how to easily make a custom Hobby Journal that will work for any craft or pastime that strikes your fancy, all with the skills and supplies you have available. The intention behind a Hobby Journal is to create a place to record your hobbies while also giving you time to pause and reflect on your accomplishments. Plus, it’s just a lot of fun creating journaling spreads for your various projects!

Students will be provided with a journaling system and template that will work for everything from knitting to reading to spinning to cooking, and the best part is that you can use whatever paper-crafting supplies you have available to you! This system works with any type of notebook: lined, dot-grid, sketch pad, etc. Just be sure to bring plenty of supplies you enjoy working with. You will focus on one journal in class, but you are welcome to bring additional supplies if you are interested in beginning more journals and want a bit of guidance. By the end of class, you will have the necessary skills and inspiration to continue your hobby journaling adventure.

This is truly a class that meets you where you are in your paper-crafting and artistic skills. As long as you can hold a pencil and/or put down some stickers or stamps, you’ll be able to participate in class.


Participants should bring: 

(1) a notebook. The type of paper and binding doesn’t matter; just bring one that you’ll enjoy working in and that will hold up to the art supplies that you want to use in it. For example, if you plan to use markers, a heavier paper is recommended so the ink doesn’t bleed through the pages.

(2) a pencil and eraser. We will be doing subtle sketching to lay out our pages.

(3) any paper-crafting supplies you want to use in your journal. For example, pens, markers, stickers, washi tape, stamps, watercolor paints are possibilities. The supplies you bring are all at your discretion. You don’t need everything; just bring what you have and want to use in your journal.
