This year’s workshop theme will be “Honoring and Celebrating” in a three-part series. We will have a host of workshops honoring & celebrating ancestors, family, traditions, trailblazers, the earth, harvest time, etc., each with a hands-on activity for participants ages 6 and up.

Affirmation Journal Making Workshop

Saturday, January 14, 2023
11:00 am - 1:00 pm | 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Affirmations are statements of truth. They are often used to encourage and reinforce positive thinking to create positive outcomes.


In this workshop, you will be wrapping a blank journal in an African printed fabric and designing a cover sheet for the inside of your journal. Once the journals are wrapped and finished we will be setting our affirmations for the new year and using our new journals. ​

** With all of the support and interest in our workshop we have opened a second section of this workshop at 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm on Saturday, January 14, 2023.​
