I cherish my memories and honor the experiences that have made me who I am today.
This workshop is designed for anyone who wants to treasure their beloved memories by upcycling an old book into a steampunk-style mini treasure chest. Over the course of two sessions, participants will learn how to cut up a book and use assemblage techniques to create a chest-looking box that holds personal memories.
The workshop will incorporate a conscious theme of honouring and treasuring memories, which will be brought into the space with a guided meditation at the beginning of each session. Participants will be encouraged to reflect on this theme through journaling and optional sharing at the end of the workshop.
In the workshop, participants will learn how to use old books, glue, cutting tools, and other materials to transform their memories into a unique and personal piece of art. They will be guided through the process step-by-step and encouraged to personalize their artwork with their own creative flair.
At the end of the workshop, participants will have a chest-looking book with personal memories. This end result will not only serve as a beautiful and unique piece of art but also a reminder of the skills they learned and the meaningful experience they had.
