Fall in love with bullet journaling as a creative and supportive tool for managing daily life in this five-part, month-long course from artist and maker, Felicity (Felix) Ford.

This five-part course leads you through a sequence of tasks designed to help you develop a personal, anti-perfectionist and playful journaling practice. Bullet points help you keep track of your plans but this organisational focus is explored within a wider framework of kindness and creative generosity. Felix’s course makes journaling fun; includes zero pressure; can be fit in around your schedule; and is equally suitable whether you’re new to the concept of bullet journaling or a seasoned practitioner looking to refresh and revitalise your approach.

KNITSONIK Bullet Journaling has grown out of Felix's art practice; her focus on celebrating daily life; and her genuine passion for using a bullet journal, fostered over the last five years.

Chronicling her knitting projects, favourite recipes, important life milestones, shopping lists and artworks, her inventive use of these books has supported the production of two published 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.

Incorporating all these elements and using her own life as a case-study, Felix models bullet journaling as a tool for uplift and problem-solving, openly sharing, with you, everything she has learned through creative bullet journaling.Messy, permissive and enabling, KNITSONIK Bullet Journaling is designed to support you in a number of different areas of life but, as you'd expect, there is a large focus on knitting, self-care and creativity.

Sign up today to explore journaling practices to keep you organised and inspired; to explore mixing up your everyday life with your creativity; and to learn together with others in a carefully managed, held and moderated online environment.

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 range of joyous and creative ways.

Although you can enjoy the course at whatever pace suits you, 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 customised approach
  • templates, tasks and structure for trying out different creative ideas
  • opportunities and encouragement for you to sit with your journal and to use it with joy and with intention
  • encouragement, feedback and support from Felix via the comments and in the optional weekly Zoom calls


"I want to say a massive thanks for creating and offering this course. I'm so grateful and honoured to have been a part of the first cohort! It was a bright shiny spot in the midst of a changing upside-down topsy turvy time. My Bullet journal provides me with so much Joy. I feel quite youthful playing with my - growing - collection of special wooden stamps and stickers, and rainbow of colouring pencils. It also has brought a sense of control and intentionality into my life. For the past few days I've been playing with the thought in my mind, what do I want my June to look like? Of course we can't predict what may come to pass, but having the intention to introduce more movement, creativity and connection into my life is the starting place. And actively pursing those things starts with the simple, hopeful act of creating lists and writing them down."

Course Curriculum



"I would like to tell anyone who is thinking of taking the course that they won’t be sorry for taking the time and resources to do this. Felix has put serious thought and creative energy into the creation of this course. There will be surprises and ideas that you hadn’t thought you might need. There will be solutions to problems that you had given up on or put aside for later. There will be things for you to ponder that you didn’t know you needed to ponder and organization ideas that you hadn’t known you needed. All of this will be fed to you by a caring soothing voice and wonderful music behind the videos that make the day feel better. Would I do it again? Yes, Yes, Yes!"
