A morning of carving your own stamps.
Draw inspiration from your favorite things: leaves, flowers, patterns, whatever floats your boat. We’ll do a bit of brainstorming and doodling and then begin to carve up some stamps.
You’ll go home with 2 or more hand carved stamps and ideas to keep you carving for months.
