About this Workshop:

In this Make+Take participants will learn the basics of relief printmaking by designing, carving, and printing handmade rubber stamps. We’ll create designs that can be repeated to create patterns or a collection of images that can be combined in different configurations for printing onto paper and fabric. Use them to make cards, wrapping paper, gift tags, and mini prints!

Level: Beginner – no experience necessary

Registration closes June 20, 2023 and all materials are provided.

  • Small doodles or sketches you’d like to carve
  • Personal apron (or wear clothes that can get inky)
  • Notepad and pencil for taking any notes
