 Pocket Letters $27.50

Thursday 27th July 7-9pm

Pocket letters are a crafty twist to the letters exchanged by pen pals all those years ago – when people actually wrote letters and didn’t send impersonal texts. Essentially, all the pockets of a trading card protector sheet are filled with handmade trading cards, and then sent or swapped with a partner. It’s traditional to also include a little gift – stickers, a tea bag, washi tape samples, and a letter can be folded up and tucked into one of the pockets.

If this sounds like something you would like to participate in, then come along to this class, have a go at creating a pocket letter and learn a little more about them. We can also discuss possibly setting up a group for meeting up and swapping pocket letters in the future.

The junk can be anything made of paper (or even Fabric) that will be bound and can be used as an art journal if you wish. Bring along anything you would like included (e.g.: special paper, shopping bags, maps, tickets, old letters, etc.). If there’s enough interest, we could look at setting up a junk art journaling group, so we can meet, have show and tell and create art in each other’s journals.
