Nature Journals for Mother's Day workshop at chi-lin

MEREDITH — The lakes gallery at chi-lin will be offering workshops on making nature journals on Thursday, April 17 and Saturday, May 10.

These charming little books are fun and easy to make. They make beautiful diaries, summerhouse recipe books or travel journals, and are unique gifts for weddings, graduation, or baby and wedding showers, and the "perfect" gift for Mother's Day. Make a special one for your Mother, or give a workshop to her and make them together.
The journals are created using beautiful hand-made rice papers, exciting combinations of natural dried leaves, your own hand block-printed ginkgo and Japanese lace leaf prints, a unique form of fabric collage or pieces of old sketches & paintings. Add small treasures.....a special small shell, ticket stub or partial photo.
No previous experience is needed. Great way to use for all those wonderful fabric and natural scraps you've saved forever if you choose, but workshop includes all materials for a finished book. (One will not be enough, but easy to do additional on your own after the first.) Thursday,
April 17 and Saturday May 10 from 11:30 to 3:30 pm. Cost is $55. or with your Mom, $95. for both. Bring your lunch & we'll serve the tea.
