  • Small journals are about 13x11 cm with 150 pages of heavy weight, mixed media paper. These journals have a postcard orientation, meaning the stitching is on the short end of the cover. This makes them ideal as sketchbooks or tarot logs. Cost is £49 (includes workshop fee).

  • Large journals are about 23x30 cm and hefty! They have 6 sections- 165 pages of heavy weight, mixed media paper. Great for for grimoires, book of shadows, wedding scrapbooks or guest books, herbal studies, Dungeons and Dragons, and more. Cost is £99 (down from £129! Price includes workshop fee).

Our leather is always changing based on availability, but we do have a steady flow of etching leather. This allows you to create symbols and images by stencilling onto your journal at the end. Wheel of Fate has several stencils available, but feel free to bring your own as well! 

Please note, only people who have booked a workshop can attend our classes. Two or more people cannot share a broom, book, or other craft, as space and materials are limited. Crafters must be age 18+. Please see "Shop Policies" below for more information before booking.

If you can't make it in to Wheel of Fate for a workshop, consider an at-home crafting kit available in our online store!
