Carve Your Own Rubber Stamp in time for the Holidays

Holiday decorating might not be the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the word linoleum, but in this workshop you will learn how to transform a plain, unassuming lino-block into a one-of-a-kind stamp with countless seasonal uses. Using a lino-cutter, you’ll learn how to imprint your own unique design into a linoleum block, adding a personal touch to gift tags, cards and wrapping paper.  Watch a demonstration on how to roll your stamp with ink and print on fabric or paper.  You’ll leave with your one-of-a-kind rubber stamp along with detailed written instructions on how to print with ink at home.
