Sketchbooking and Journaling Workshop with Caroline Healey

Sketchbooking and Journaling Workshop

Sunday 29th March 2020 10am-4pm

Do you have an almost empty sketchbook languishing at home? Would you like to make a beautiful, meaningful memory sketchbook to express yourself personally or to document an important period of your life for a loved one? Would you like to learn techniques and skills that will help you keep up this fulfilling and exciting hobby long term? This workshop is for you! Caroline will show you her sketchbooks documenting her travels and life in general, her month walking El Camino (the pilgrimage walk across Spain) – one page per day and her baby sketchbook. Time to get inspired!

What you will learn and get out of the day:

  • Learn how to sketch and paint with watercolours and pen, outdoors and inside
  • Learn how to finish your page so each page is a work of art
  • A tips sheet to take away
  • Inspiration to continue and extend what you’ve learnt at home
  • A really enjoyable day which is just for you


  • Class size is capped at 12 so you will get plenty of individual attention and tuition


  • Intro into sketch booking and journaling with Caroline’s books available to be leafed through for inspiration
  • Sketching outside in The F Project garden
  • Finishing off sketches/learning tips on adding to the pages to make them even more appealing
  • Lunch
  • Second sketching session, location to be chosen by the group and weather dependent
  • Working on pages indoors

What to bring:

  • A sketchbook or notebook with plain pages (thickish pages are best, a spiral bound visual diary with black plastic cover is available for around $10 from Darrian Office Choice, Fairy St)
  • A fineliner pen. I recommend Uni-ball Eye Fine Rollerball Pen. Also available from Darrian.
  • Watercolours. Any set will do.
  • Two paint brushes: one with a fine point and one thick one. These are available for approx. $5 for a pack of four at Bargain Buys.
  • A phone (or camera) to take a photo
  • A glue stick
  • Any ticket stubs, printed photos, magazine or newspaper cuttings, anything you’d like to stick into your book.

What’s provided:

  • Water jars
  • Paper towel
  • Afternoon tea
  • Tea and coffee
