Journal Club

Journal Club is an open table, freestyle visual art group for journaling, sketching, designing, writing and creating memories through the artistic process. Filling the pages of an empty journal can be intimidating to anyone. By showing others my current journal full of drawings, poems, collected items, coffee stains and more, I can encourage others to record their experiences in their own way and with their own voice. During journal club we will explore the ideas of what could be included in a journal and how to structure each page and other creative strategies will be discussed. 

Bringing a journal is encouraged but not required. Journals will be available for purchase. Some supplies like pencils, pens, vintage postage stamps, and decorative papers are provided, but everyone is welcome to bring a journal and any supplies they wish. There is conversation, inspiration, and an opportunity to ask questions and join in the creative process.


Local bookbinder and avid journal artist, Catherine Griesen has been making her mark in the art scene of Lincoln, Nebraska for over 20 years. She earned her B.A. in Studio Arts from Nebraska Wesleyan University in 2003, initially focusing on ceramics and metalsmithing. Eventually, she found a love for bookbinding in college after taking papermaking classes.

She has established a small, but busy studio in her home where she creates unique one-of-a-kind, soft bound leather journals amongst other paper-based arts.

Catherine also enjoys filling personal journals with her own sketches. She teaches bookbinding classes and art clubs for kids, and workshop style Journal Clubs.  She sells her art through several venues including the annual Quilt Center Art Market.  Multiyear award-winning participant in Lincoln Arts Festival.  Custom orders created for various clients such as Cabela's/BassProShops.
