For many years I’ve taught bookbinding and journaling classes. We always make a book of some sort that is suited to the type of creative work we’ll be doing in the book. For awhile a lot of those classes involved mixed media and collage techniques. While I still teach such classes I find that rather than bringing the collage materials to the class for the students I prefer to encourage students to collect their own collage items. I still bring decorative papers and odds and ends, as well as threads and notions, but I’ve phased out other materials.
