Design, Carve and Print your own stamps 

 

Perfect for scrapbooks, cards, art journaling, textile printing and mixed media on canvas, hand-carved rubber stamps help you add your own unique mark to your work.

 

Pattern design and pattern making is and always has been an important human activity and we live surrounded by patterns.

Pattern could be found everywhere, as micro and macro structures, from fabrics, to nature, to tires to animal coats. 

Patterns usually provide foundation for a material construction, as in architecture, or as surface decoration and ornament. 

 

As self taught stamp artists and experienced art teacher, I have developed a series of stamp carving exercises and techniques. 

 

We’ll go over the basics, including tools, cutting techniques, and creating your stamp designs and getting them onto your rubber. We’ll make several stamps during the  class, focusing on basic designs and repeating patterns. There will be sample designs from my own stamps available for you to use, or you can design your own!

We will stamp on paper, gift cards and textile.
