GTG Workshop: Create an artist’s notebook!


In today’s virtual workshop, artist Sophie Daly will show you how to create your own beautiful and unique artist’s notebook – every artist needs one!

The emphasis today is on recycled materials. Be creative with what you have around you, and don’t let anything go to waste, nothing is ever useless! Finding creative ways to reduce what we throw away is a brilliant habit to help our planet.



You will need:

  • Cardboard
  • Scrap paper
  • Old books/newspapers/leaflets etc
  • Scissors
  • Tape
  • Needle and thread
  • Something pokey, like a screwdriver
  • A ruler and pencil

Many artists are now working with recycled or more sustainable materials, and using their art to draw attention to climate change and the need to look after our planet.

What else do you have that instead of being thrown away, could be re-used to make art? Send us your ideas!
