Event Details

The Shackleton Museum in collaboration with Angelina Foster present “Just like Shackleton”.

Just like Shackleton – Create your own Journal or Notebook

Using coptic stitch Angelina Foster will guide you to bind your own fabric clothed journal and screen print the Shackleton motto “By Endurance we conquer” in English or Latin Fortitudine Vincimus on the cover.

In 1915 Endurance sank in the Antarctic, and so began one of the greatest survival stories ever told. To commemorate Shackleton’s famous journey we are hosting a make your own journal workshop. You can also sketch or record your own tales in your handmade journal, just like Shackleton.

There is something very special about binding your own sketchbook, notebook or diary. If you keep a diary, like to write or sketch this is a perfect way to connect with your thoughts.

Suitable for beginners with a max of 5 people to ensure attention to detail.
