Learn how to make your own stamps using soft lino and print them onto fabric. Students are encouraged to create their own imagery but references will be available. By the end of the workshop you will have learned the process to be able to continue in your home studio. Stamps can be used to create your own personalized t-shirts, tote bags, patches, cards and more.
We will provide fabric, but students are encouraged to bring in T-shirts or fine woven fabric (like sheeting) or felt if they wish!
