Stamp Making Workshop

Woohoo!!! I'm teaching again!!!

Please join me on Sunday, November 22 at the Upstart Crow in Ladner, for a one day workshop on carving your own stamps*.

Do you love to incorporate stamping into your scrapbooking or mixed media work? Are you looking for a new creative way to make ATC's, greeting cards or gift tags? Join local printmaker Amie Roman ( as she teaches you how to create your own stamps from scratch! Design, carve, and print your own stamps using simple tools and non-toxic,easy clean up materials. Participants will take home their own hand-carved stamps and the knowledge and skills to create more at home. Some supplies required and lots included info at the shop.

*I have tried to hold printmaking workshops repeatedly in different municipalities, and with a variety of art organizations, around the Lower Mainland, and they never got off the ground because of lack of interest. So I figured I'd be sneaky and try to enthuse crafters and artists alike with stamp carving. What the heck - it's the same thing! Printmaking just sounds more complicated and esoteric. Fingers crossed that I'll get a better response from this one.
