Discover one of the most ancient, awesome and fun forms of printmaking! No previous art experience is required (but totally welcome).
I will teach you everything you will need to know about making your own block printing stamps. Maybe you need to stamp your logo on packaging, make name tags for a wedding or you simply need to decorate your entire world with amazing reproducible art wherever you go? Either way, we got you!
You create your own or pick one of our original designs, transfer it onto the rubber carving block, carve it out, make your handle and stamp art until your hearts content! I will guide you along the way, with techniques, best practices and safety tips; so that you have the best stamp carving experience ever!
Let's embrace our inner rubber block carvers together!
Recommended for ages 10 and up (Class requires the use of a sharp carving tool and lots of patience)
The class is held at “Embrace the Weird” inside “Crafted at the Port of LA” - the South Bays premiere arts and crafts experience center and marketplace. Come early or stay after to explore 30+ studios, galleries, hand-made shops and enjoy an adult beverage at our onsite craft brewery!
