Decorative contents of an Islamic friendship sketchbook journal by artist Hanan Zein Eddin

A sketchbook journal set created by the artist Hanan Zein Eddin

Using beautifully designed and coloured papers, which will be Islamic Art themed, you'll be guided how to build a lovely friendship journal, learning how to bind it, create a closure and a cover, and decorate it with a variety of materials.

You will also make a matching bookmark and a few ephemera to go with it. The journal will be ready for drawing or writing. It will be a relaxing, creative activity producing a beautiful item to cherish afterwards.

This is part of our Making a Mark season of events.
