Stamp Carving + Print Party!・May 11

from 70.00

Saturday, May 11

3 PM - 5 PM (carving only)

with James Colby and Emily Hitz

at Assembly Studio-- 325 21st St W  (cross-street Ave D)

Perfect for Mother’s Day! Make a date with mom (or someone special) to try something new. Stamps aren’t just for kids. Keep it simple, or go sophisticated— we’ll help you along the way.

Participants will learn how to use a variety of blades to carve a unique design out of specialized rubber. You will learn how to consider negative space, designing backwards, and layering multiple stamps, when planning your design. We will also discuss the history of block printing (aka stamp carving) and other tools and mediums.

For those who are interested, once we finish carving, we will have a printing party! It feels amazing to go from the concentrated work of carving, to the relaxing play of printing. You can try out your stamp on a variety of products (listed below)— but why limit ourselves? You can share stamps with other participants, and from our beautiful stamp collection (photos 10 and 11). We’ll have lots of scrap paper for you to play around with patterns and designs.

The time and the base price are for carving only. The printing portion of the evening will begin around 5 PM— bring a beverage if you’d like!

Instructors: James Colby has learned various forms of print making through working in a sign shop, formal study, and personal practice. In recent years he has been working mostly in wood/lino carving. His work features various objects and creatures, and a playful, illustrative style. He is lucky enough to be married to, and co-teaching this workshop with, Emily.

Emily Hitz is the owner, coordinator, and multi-workshop instructor of Craft School YXE. While fibre arts are her main focus, the last two years she has dabbled and grown in her block printing skills, thanks to working alongside Jen Schier in Craft School’s early days, carving many stamps for Craft School’s stamp events, and casually learning from James.
