Washed & Worn Art Journaling Retreat in Oregon Forest ~ Hosted by Monica Gill and Michelle Geller


  • Heaven and Earth Retreats 19892 Northwest Sellers Road Banks, OR, 97106 United States (map)


Create a journal that looks and feels faded from time. We will dye and stain papers for the pages and leather, twine and silk for the binding using paint, tea, spices, and rust. These all come together to create a journal that looks and feels earthy, loved and ancient.
