Explore simple printing through a variety of stamp-making techniques. Spend the morning learning how to make your own stamps using a range of easily available materials.
We will explore some easy techniques for making your own stamps using a range of materials….from the humble carrot to the more sophisticated rubber! These will be used to print stylized flowers and foliage – and maybe the odd bird or butterfly. If tiny townscapes are more your thing, or maybe a collection of cacti, we have you covered too.
The techniques we will learn can be adapted to all sorts of subject matter and are perfect for printing on paper or fabric to make mini works of art or greetings cards. After we have made our range of stamps, we will create a fun and quirky image combining print, paint and a little bit of bling!
Specific skills you will learn
- Using acrylic paint and/or watercolour for printing
- Making stamps from a range of materials
- Combining and layering different elements
- Exploring pattern, shape and simplification
All Ardington ONLINE classes and talks are accompanied by their own online blackboard. Helpful and easy to use, they enable students and tutors to share resources, ideas and photos with each other – just as you would in a classroom environment.
Karen will offer feedback via the blackboard for any work uploaded by students within thirty days of the class ending. You will be sent the link to access your blackboard in the week before your class begins and will have access for at least sixty days after the class ends.
After the live session has finished on Zoom, we will share the link to view the recording on the blackboard. You can watch the recording as many times as you like for sixty days.
We suggest that you do not buy any specialist materials more than one week in advance as, occasionally, a class may be cancelled due to low enrolment.
