About the workshop
During this workshop you will be given the knowledge necessary to carve your own stamp with a festive twist. You will learn to carve soft lino which is both easier, more satisfying and much more user friendly than the old lino. You will be shown the basics of how to create a stamp from designs provided or from one of your own design (no bigger than 8x8cm please).
The techniques demonstrated include ways of using your stamps at home without expensive lino inks.
Instructions and tips will be given as well as ideas about using lino stamps on different materials and repeat patterns.
- All tools will be supplied
- Suitable for beginners and intermediate
- Take home your stamp and decorated cards to either send or frame
