After this workshop, your thank you cards and letters will never be the same.
In three glorious hours, you'll be able to:
• Design, carve, and edition your own personalized letterheads using hand-made stamps
• Learn new mark-making techniques, including stenciling, to make unique stationery pieces on heavyweight paper
• Exchange and collaborate with fellow students!
Bring in 10-15 small photocopies (not print outs!), approximately 4" x 5", of black-and-white images you'd like to use to transfer onto letterhead. Make sure images are simple and clear; it will make the carving process easier.
We'll also experiment with making envelopes for your letterhead!
(class size: 10, hands on, includes a linoleum cutter set with several carving blades for you to keep!)
