A meander journal is made from a single piece of paper that is cut and folded so that the pages twist and turn (“meander”) inside the book. We’ll decorate the pages and create colorful covers. Meander journals are wonderful travel journals and are lovely as gifts.

You can keep them private if you wish.

Sketching Group ….. Friday mornings, 9:30
