Cloth Book Art Journals taught by Molly Anthony

September 30 @ 10:00 am 1:00 pm



Art journals are a place to turn our creativity loose and explore both our ideas and our supplies, but they don’t need to be limited to paper pages. Sometimes we need the soft feel of fabric on our fingers and the slow process of stitching to express the emotions and visualizations in our hearts and minds. Together we’ll explore the world of fabric books, and we’ll look at several different structures to use as a framework for our own textile and thread journals. We won’t focus on perfectly constructing our books, but instead will allow space for wild creativity to have free reign on our messy and unique pages.

Please bring a selection of fabric to use for the inside pages of your book (you may want to bring a yard of fabric (tightly woven linen, cotton, or utility fabric) and then cut it down once you decide on a size for your book). You will also need something to use as a cover (a heavier fabric, such as canvas, or if you prefer a sturdier cover, you can use an old book cover with the pages removed), fabric scissors, needles and thread. Some extra needles, embroidery floss, and fabric scissors will be available for shared use in class.

Molly Anthony is a writer and mixed-media artist and is also the co-facilitator for the MN Visual Journal Collective (a free monthly group for artists of all mediums hosted by Wet Paint). She loves exploring art in all forms and sharing her ideas with others, but through the pandemic and family struggles she learned the importance of using those practices for self-care. In her work and her teachings, she strives to embrace imperfection, focuses on process over product and is constantly looking for new ways to be curious about the world around her. You can find her artwork on Instagram at @mkranthony and on her website TheFoundArtWalk.com.
