Workshop: journal making and rituals of care with Cora Sehgal Cuthbert

Thursday 2nd November 2023 , 6:00pm to 8:00pm

Spend a cosy evening with artist Cora Sehgal Cuthbert as we explore DIY journal making and guided journalling as rituals of care, whilst reflecting on the connection between journals and shrines as vessels of love, belonging, and tenderness. 
Journey of love – Cora Sehgal Cuthbert

Cora will kick off the workshop giving a little bit of context around the ideas of love and loss that ground her practice and how they manifest through her interest in rituals of care and the significance of shrines in Indian cultures. 

We will embody this ethos of love and care into making our own personalised DIY journals, cutting, pasting, and sewing a range of recycled and found materials. 

Cora will then introduce the idea of guided journalling as an act of care and self-love, inviting attendees to grapple with a range of prompts and provocations before adding their own responses to build out guided journals that ground, lift, and give us a sense of lightness amidst it all. 

No experience necessary – all making materials are provided!
