Sketch Journaling Workshop

Learn how to make a sketch journal with Claire Ritchie in Brisbane



2 hours Class size 1 to 16 (public classes), 12 to 40 label $80


Learn to build your very own drawing journal with celebrated Australian artist Claire Ritchie. You will learn fun exercises and techniques to develop and refine their drawing skills and apply these to their very own drawing journal.

The commitment to drawing in a journal each day can be tough but, oh so rewarding. Not only are you building your skills each day, but you are also making time for yourself and taking a moment to stop and clear your mind. You will be walked through a number of exercises to take and continue each day at home.

All ages and skill levels are welcome!

Please note: This class requires at least five students to run. In the unlikely event that we don't get this number of students, we'll cancel the class and fully refund you and inform you via email, so please watch your email a few days prior to the class.



Aside from this class, Work-Shop also has the following coming up:

Colour is Claire Ritchie’s language and she uses it in a visually striking, definite and feel-good way. Claire’s artwork draws people in to feel better about the person they are.

Claire designs and makes a selection of artwork, accessories, clothing and homewares made in small batches, brought to life through colourful and bold prints.

All products are designed and made by Claire herself in her Brisbane home studio.

Claire studied Clothing Production and Fashion & Textile Design in her hometown Perth, Western Australia before moving to the east coast in 2013 with her sewing machine and a string of vibrant fabrics in tow. In 2018, she packed up her beloved Melbourne studio and headed north for a sunny change of pace.

Several years of sewing to her own creative beat and always staying true to her values of treating our beautiful environment with care underpins what Claire Ritchie is all about. Claire challenges consumers to shop more carefully, to buy high quality items and treat them well, to slow down the fast fashion movement. She hopes her thoughtfully designed items will inspire people to shop with the same thoughtfulness.

Such a fun class! Claire was super friendly and has a wealth of experience that she was able to share with us - from exercises to get our creative juices flowing, to tips on finding inspiration. We had a playlist going in the background throughout the workshop which was great in helping inspire our journalling and we had so many great materials to work with and take home. Highly recommend.

Angela Kitzelman Mar 2021


I loved this class. The venue was great - quirky and comfortable, the class size was perfect and gave opportunity to interact but also have one on one attention. Claire made it fun, accessible and interesting and I came away with lots of ideas for drawings and journaling.

Ingrid Larkin Mar 2021


Claire was a fabulous facilitator. Great venue and cool soundtrack for inspiration. Two hours flew by and I did a few more pages when I got home from workshop. I will make this style of journalling part of my regular creative and mindfulness practice. Loved this workshop! Thanks Claire.

I thoroughly enjoyed the Sketch Journaling Workshop with Claire Ritchie. Claire was a wonderful facilitator and the workshop was well planned. It didn't feel rushed and we covered all activities. The exercises I learnt from the workshop will help me start my own daily practice.

Such a positive and uplifting experience. The teacher had several exercises that were well planned, simply explained and easy to execute but made you use your brain and body in interesting and fresh ways. Beautiful basic supplies provided to not only complete the exercises but to take home and continue experimenting, excellent value for money. Highly recommend this class for anyone who doesn't think they are arty but wants to accomplish something and start practicing or anyone who is arty but wants to try letting go especially if you are experiencing the dreaded art block.

Claire was interesting & engaging, the time flew. Loved the class. Great relaxed setting. Very comfortable area.

Rameez Kneebone Jul 2020


Claire was amazing and really make me feel that anyone can draw, you don't have to be a great artist. The materials provided were fantastic quality and Claire delivered the workshop in an organised and professional manner.

Thanks so much,
Rameez
