Join Lizzie, from Rare Press, for this hands-on Intro to Blockprinting, with a focus on creating your own custom Valentines. This is a great class for beginners! She’ll walk you through the steps of creating your own custom stamp, from sketching, transferring your drawing to rubber, carving, and printing. The possibilities are endless!
During class, we will use the following supplies:
✵ 4×6″ block of pink Speedy Carve rubber
✵ Speedball carving tool with 5 gouges
✵ black stamp pad (which you can take home after class)
✵ soft lead pencil
✵ sketch paper and colorful printing paper
Lizzie will help you create a custom Valentine design, which you can print a stack of to take home and mail to your loved ones. You can also bring home your stamp pads and some colorful paper to keep printing after class. Lizzie loves Valentines and blockprinting, so get ready for a really fun class!
