Maria’s Custom Handmade Journals

Custom Handmade journals and blank books are available by commission with your choice of paper and cover design. Special books can be created for guest books, weddings, births, anniversaries, or artist books.

Tutoring Available

Take an individual tutoring workshop from Maria and learn to make a practical and beautiful journal for your own daily use to capture images and writings. In this one-day class you will make a simple handmade book with multimedia paper and a decorative cover, hand bound with a Coptic stitch. You will then explore a variety of options to personalize the journal with cover images, colophon, and dedication page. This journal can be used for nature journaling, visual journaling, or any mixed media, such as water color, collage, etc. No experience needed. Once you learn this bookbinding method, you can use it to make scrapbooks, guest books, photo albums, or other types of art books.

Contact Maria for scheduling and details.
