Create special Valentine's Cards for friends and family by designing and carving rubber blocks for printing and stamping. All skill levels are welcome including anyone aged 7 and up (parents must accompany children under 12 and pay for a spot in the workshop). We will work with your design to print on your choice of 15 postcards, 10 cards with envelopes, or 25 2x3 cards (for Valentine exchanges). For the more adventurous, we'll have some different substrates to print on.
Materials to bring: Nothing. We will be working with printing inks so wear something that can get a little dirty.
