Make Your Own Stationery/Block Printing Class (16+)


This class is scheduled for Thursday, August 16th from 7pm-10pm.

Learn the ancient art of block printing to create your own custom linoleum-cut stamps to use on personalized stationery or create your own edition of small block-prints in this two and a half-hour class.

All supplies are included, and you'll leave with either 10 stamped personalized cards (with envelopes) or an edition of 6 block prints on printmaking paper, as well as your custom block.

The class will begin promptly so we can get right to work on teaching you about creating bold designs and the importance of negative space, transferring your design, and the tools and techniques of linoleum cutting. 

If you'd like to bring a simple design to work on, that's great, but Sarahjane is more than happy to help you get your design started. Simple designs will also be provided if you'd like to pick some from provided seasonal templates.

Ideas for cards or prints:

  • personalized stationery with your first initial and a favorite flower, plant, or animal

  • put a cat on it

  • holiday motifs

Not recommended:

  • photos

  • images with low contrast

  • overly complex designs (this class could be too short for your design to be completed)
