Create your own original stamp used for scrapbooking and handmade cards!
During this exciting, two-day workshop, students will be introduced to the various techniques of block printing.  After viewing an instructor-led demonstration, students will develop and design a theme for their cards.  Holiday and thank you cards are suggested, but not required.
Upon completion of the design stage, students will begin the process of carving their own linoleum block stamp.  During the final step of the process, students will be taught how to print their stamps, finishing their beautiful, personalized cards.

This workshop is suitable for teens.
