KNITSONIK Bullet Journaling May - June 2020
Bullet Journaling for the Messy and Inspired
This five-part course has grown out of Felicity (Felix) Ford's passion for using her bullet journals over the last five years.
Chronicling her knitting projects, her favourite recipes, important health milestones, shopping lists and artworks, her creative use of these books has supported the production of two books; the slow expansion of a tiny one-woman business; and the completion of several artistic commissions. Creative uses of her bullet journal have also supported Felix through some serious health setbacks.
This course is about Felix sharing what she has learned through creative bullet journaling with you.
Messy, permissive and enabling, KNITSONIK Bullet Journaling is designed to support you in a number of different areas of life. The focus is on developing journaling practices which help keep you both organised and inspired. The creative and the everyday are deliberately intertwined. As well as teaching you new and rewarding ways to use a journal, enrolling in this course is an opportunity to celebrate and record daily life in a number of joyous and creative ways.
KNITSONIK Bullet Journaling has been designed to run across a month and the aim is to empower you by providing:
- customisable building-blocks on which to found your own creative bullet journaling approach
- templates, tasks and structure for trying out different creative ideas
- opportunities for you to sit with your journal and to use it with joy and with intention
This is the very first course launching in The KNITSONIK School and for its inaugaural run, it will be run in real-time, from 1st - 31st May 2020. Weekly ZOOM meetings will enable students to meet to ask questions and offer feedback, and content will be released in sections as we proceed through the month together. Sign-ups for this course will open again towards the end of June 2020, for a wonderful month of journaling together through July.

Felicity (Felix) Ford is a practicing artist and creative instructor. She primarily works with knitting and sound - hence KNITSONIK.
Her work is mostly focused on uplifting and celebrating daily life through creative practice. From her work on soundart commissions for museums like The Wellcome Library and the Charles Dickens Museum, to her self-published knitting books on translating everyday life into stranded colourwork, all Felix's work is, at its heart, about loving - and creatively engaging with - our real, everyday lives.
Felix has taught in many different places including the Ediburgh Yarn Festival; Shetland Wool Week; at the Tuned City Soundart Festival; and as an undergraduate lecturer at Oxford Brookes University during and following her doctoral research there. She loves teaching and the rich exchange of ideas inherent to the process.
Whether writing, knitting or recording sounds, her focus is always on celebrating the textures of daily life and on helping others find ways to do the same.
