This Saturday the 5th of March (from 2-4pm) I'll be teaching a workshop at Craft Makers in Tralee, Co.Kerry. It's a beginners Block Printing workshop and you'll be learning how to make your own stamps from rubber carving blocks. You'll also learn the techniques of carving soft lino (much easier to cut than normal lino!) and printing your designs.
We'll be starting with carving the rubber blocks because it's very easy to carve, just to get you used to using the carving tools. Then we'll have some fun stamping with them before moving on to the soft lino and learning some more advanced techniques, showing you some of the creative possibilities, like making your own patterned paper, gift wrap and coordinating greeting cards.
Should be a fun crafty day for all. Hope to see you there if you're in the locality! : )
