NOTE: THIS WORKSHOP IS SOLD OUT.
Join us at Print St. Pete Community Letterpress as we welcome back local artist & printmaker Coralette Damme aka The Crafty Hag for a Stamp Carving Workshop on Sunday, May 5th 2019 (1-4pm). In this 3-hour workshop, Coralette will share her stamp carving secrets and walk students through the process of turning their designs into permanent, hand-carved stamps. Concerned about a lack of drawing skill? No worries. Simple shapes can be easily repeated to make amazing final designs. If you like, you'll have a chance to create a Cinco de Mayo Mexican flavored stamp inspired by the Mexican folk art of "Papel Picado". Inspirational designs will be provided to trace, or you can create your own. Participants will create prints and notecards using their hand-carved stamps. Students will take home their stamp, which can be used at home for other projects beyond paper goods, such as tea towels, patches, tote bags and more! $45 - all supplies & tools included. Limited seating. Pre-registration and payment is required to reserve your seat. This workshop requires no prior experience and is great for beginners. Just bring your curiosity and willingness to experiment!
