Journal Workshop at Queen’s House
All the children at Queen’s enjoyed a Journals Workshop with artist and journal maker Rebecca Guyver. They learnt how to make their journals out of cardboard, folded paper and elastic bands. Then they got busy decorating the pages with paint, ink stamps, cut out shapes and collage. They made mini books and zig zag books to go into pockets. They wrote on luggage tags and cut out photographs that inspired them. Each group had a particular focus around their topics covered so far this term. The children then wrote about things that interested them – stories, lists, memories or just words to do with their favourite things. It was a wonderful creative experience and the children will carry on adding to these precious journals throughout the year.
