What’s it all about?
Carving erasers to make stamps is a fun and easy way to create images, and it is a unique print-making skill. Eraser stamps are easy to combine together, and this makes them an excellent medium for collaborating. In this workshop, we are going to learn how to make funny, lovely, strange stamps and combine them in a co-operative way!
Kids will have lots of fun with the stamps you make for them, or you can even make a unique signature stamp for yourself to sign your personal letters and invitations.
What will we cover?
You will learn an efficient carving technique and tips for using the materials effectively. As an example, we will carve various body parts—eyes, ears, hands, etc.—and put them together in any colour and combination into create complete creatures which can make for curious characters and great patterns.
