Make your own handmade nature journal in this class that delves into nature’s role in the writing process. We’ll make journals using apiece of handmade paper for the cover and simple stitching for the binding. Weather-permitting, we’ll take a walk outside, interact with nature nearby, and begin writing. No writing experience necessary.
What is nature’s role in the writing process?
How does nature motivate, inspire, focus and expand our art and stories? What memories bubble up when we are outside and what connections are made between where we are, where we’ve been and where we’re going? We’ll read selections from current nature writing for inspiration. Together, we’ll discuss and write about place, memory, and what it means to interact with nature nearby.
