This is a low-key workshop where you can explore different techniques for making your own stamps. We will cut and carve designs out of three different materials used to make stamps: soft printing blocks, foam and veggies. After working on a simple design, participants will then work at carving their stamps and can play with stamping using supplied inks and paper. Participants will take home their carved stamps, their samples of stamped paper, linoleum cutter tools and materials that they can take home with them to practice cutting!
All of these are covered by a materials fee which is included in the price of the class.
Students are welcome to bring their own sketches, books or other items for inspiration. They may also bring their own materials to stamp on.
