Book Of Days

Book Of Days is an immersion in art journaling with an emphasis on meeting yourself on the page that is taught in sessions of 52, 12, or 8 weeks, depending on the year the workshop was filmed. Some sessions are themed, and others are ‘free for all’ but include a virtual mixed media buffet of different ways into the journal.

While some of what we cover in each session is seasonal (for example, in a December lesson, I might address Yule or Christmas), the sessions themselves are evergreen – by which I mean that they remain relevant & valuable long after the workshop’s ‘live’ period is over. All students in Book of Days regardless of the session get access to Effy via email and the BODKin Cafe Facebook Group, as well as free invitations and access to monthly live video classes.

All participates in Book Of Days are encouraged to take Book Of Days Boot Camp, which is available to Effy’s newsletter subscribers *for free*. Please sign up here to get access to Boot Camp as well as other VIP resources as they are released.

Below, you will find links to all of the currently available sessions of Book Of Days, including the most current (year long) session, and those that were filmed in years past.

In this class, we will make a pamphlet style journal, and then over the course of 8 lessons, fill it up with soulful, emotive faces.

You will encounter a diversity of techniques and mediums in this class, ranging from iconic portraiture to paint over collage.

All content is downloadable and yours to keep!

Enjoy unlimited ‘forever’ access for $49

Please note that the price for this class will be going up at the end of 2017.


Facing Forward II – 8 + Weeks

In this class, we will spend eight weeks + together, exploring faces in the art journal. My intention throughout this class is to work with the negative self talk we all experience, and transform those messages into affirmations – the things we need to hear. These explorations will inform the creation of each face.

Each week, we will focus on a different way to create faces in the journal using a diverse range of mediums and techniques ranging from paint over collage to doodling.

There is an extensive “INTRODUCTION” and “BOOT CAMP”, both of which are jam packed with enough content to keep you busy for *weeks*, and this content will be accessible to you immediately upon completing registration.
