04.08.17 — Intro to Hand Carved Stamps

from 55.00

Taught by: Laura Fisk with Fisk & Fern

Date: Saturday, April 8th

Time: 1pm - 3pm

Join us in our studio and learn all about stamp carving with Laura Fisk, owner of Fisk & Fern.

You'll learn how to turn shapes and simple doodles into hand carved rubber stamps! Stamp carving is such a fun and quick way to translate an idea into something you can print over and over again onto cards, wrapping paper, tote bags and even tees! 

During this class, you will learn the basics of stamp carving using tools of the trade. Laura will teach you how to transfer an image while giving you carving tips to make your own rubber stamp. She'll then go over the different inks and paints to use and how to care for your stamps!

We'll be focusing on carving fun Texas themed shapes like cacti, armadillos and boots in addition to festive holiday shapes! But the sky's the limit to what you can create with your new found carving skills :)

All materials and supplies needed for this class will be provided and you will take home your rubber stamp(s), a set of greeting cards as well as gift tags.

What you'll get (and keep):

  • 2 hours of personalized instruction
  • 4x6 stamp block (enough to make several stamps!)

MEET LAURA:

Laura is an illustrator and printmaker working out of Austin, TX. She is the owner of Fisk & Fern, a little paper and household goods company featuring her silly and strange characters.

Her love of printmaking started at a little rubber stamp store she worked at in high school. There, she learned how to carve her goofy drawings into rubber stamps.  It kicked on a lifelong love of anything printmaking, and started the path becoming an illustrator.   After carving hundreds of stamps she learned how to screenprint which is heart of her line now.  There’s always a good dose of silliness in he work, and hopes to make people chuckle and smile through her goofy illustrations.

Her work has been in many retailers across the country, and has been featured on Buzzfeed, Daily Candy, Oh So Beautiful Paper, and Edible Indy, among other wonderful places.
