Jill Simkins: Coptic Stitch Art Journal

September 22 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm

COST: $25 /  Maximum of 25 / All ability levels

A hand-made journal is a place to doodle, paint, collage, nature journal, urban sketch, or record your day. We will construct the journals with your choice of vintage book covers or blank canvas panels. Watercolor paper, drawing paper, decorative papers, wax thread and all supplies will be provided.

Stitching the pages together with the Coptic Stitch allows them to lay flat as you draw or paint. You can easily create a double-spread horizontal landscape, or turn the journal vertically to capture tall trees and buildings. Designing a journal with your choice of materials gives you the perfect place to create.

Please bring any specific papers you wish to add to your journal and a pair of scissors.

Hands on Art Registration


Jill is an Organic Vegetable Farmer who creates art in many mediums; using plants and flowers, magical garden paths, oil or water-color paint, clay, and by using recycled, found or worn out items. Living her life working outside in the soil and discovering this beautiful world by hiking, backpacking, catering horse-pack trips in the High Uintah’s, river rafting, or camping in her vintage trailer, has given her a great respect and love for the outdoors which she attempts to capture on canvas. She especially enjoys painting cows, farm animals, and people.  Her work has been sold in several galleries throughout the West.

She writes about her painting and adventures  here.
