A Hermit's Compendium of Imaginary Creatures
Aside from the ridiculously long title, this class also has a whole host of kooky creatures and a small section on creating whimsically written journal entries too.
Very much like an olde curiosity shoppe this class has a little bit of everything in it.
The class is focused around decorating a journal inside and out and learning different ways of creating creatures in the journal to make something wonderfully unusual for you to keep forever.
So if you have been looking for a class that is curiously odd and a bit of lighthearted fun, you have come to the right place.

As well as the videos themselves teacher support is included with the class along with access to a private facebook group. Teacher support/advice/critiques etc is always available throughout the duration of your time in the class. You can contact me in a variety of ways depending on your preference, either directly in the typepad class comments section, via the private class facebook group, facebook private message or via email if preffered. I aim to answer all messages within 48hrs.
