Hand Carved Stamps and Printmaking

At this workshop you'll learn the steps to create a unique, hand-carved linoleum stamp & the basics of printmaking. The skills you acquire in this workshop can be easily recreated at home and are great for personalizing greeting cards, adorning envelopes, decorating wrapping paper or making your own notepads!

  

After our creative guru gives you an introduction of all materials, including how to safely use the carving tools, we'll demo techniques & get your wheels turning with a number of examples and ideas!  Each participant will design & carve on a 2-3 inch lino carving plate (think "stamp"), working at their own pace.  


We provide the technique & all tools + materials, including carving blocks, the use of a variety of carving tools + colored ink pads & nice quality papers.  The printing plate stamps and everything you print are yours to keep and use over and over again!


WHAT'S INCLUDED:

  • Two hours of basic hand carving + printmaking instruction
  • Use of carving tools, brayers, inks, high quality papers
  • (1) 4" x 5" or (2) 2" x 2-1/2" printmaking block (your finished carvings and any extra pieces of your stamping block are yours to keep and re-use!)
