Bullet Journaling for Beginners

Starting out the new year with ambitions to keep a planner but don’t know where to start or which one to buy? This beginner’s workshop will introduce you to the bullet journal, an analog handwritten system created by Ryder Carroll, which allows you to create a custom journal that works for you. Want to just keep a diary and a food log? Great! Want a habit tracker and a budget? Great! This customizable form of keeping your life in order is a life changer.

During this class you will be introduced to the basic concept of creating and keeping your own bullet journal (or bujo as the converts call it). Class materials fee will include a new journal (color choice will be communicated with the teacher), pens, washi tape, stickers, and other forms of decorating.

The class will cover bullet journaling basics, tools, how to customize the journal for your personal, professional, and creative life, and will also discuss real life examples of different journals.

PLEASE NOTE: There is a materials fee of $20 which includes a new journal to take home (no fee if you already have your own journal to use). Nonmembers, this is included in the price of your ticket. Sign up by January 10 so the teachers have ample time to procure journals for you in the color of your choosing!
