About this experience
ONLY 15 Spots available
Time: Please arrive at 6:15 pm so we can start on time
Location: This event will be held in my new colourful creative space in Creekside - ART POP. Located right beside the grocery store. Underground parking is free.
What will we be making: We will be creating a stamp out of a 4"x5" rubber block. I love print making! It's so much fun and the results are really nice. You don't need to have any experience and you barley need to be able to draw a stick figure. Many of the people in the photos said that they "couldn't even draw" and look how awesome they turned out. Each student will be able to print at least 2 cards and 2 matching envelope during the workshop AND you get to take your stamp home with you to print as many times as you like on paper or fabric.
How does it work?: Prints are made by drawing (or tracing) an image onto a special rubber block. You then cut out your lines with a special tool. Apply ink with a roller and print it on to all types of papers or fabric. You can do simple shapes and patterns or create fairly detailed images. It's up to you.
You can choose to borrow the tools for this workshop or buy them so you can make more prints at home for $15/person - at the end of the last class almost everyone bought their tools, Yes! it was that mich fun,
Things to consider:
Please wear clothing that you don't mind getting a little ink on
