Join me at Circle of Stitches for this moon-inspired workshop, and make your art print to take home! In this class, you will learn basic block printing techniques. Using lino cutting tools and speedy carve rubber, you will design three moon phase stamps in your unique style. Two can be stamped in reverse to get five phases. You can choose to stamp them on black paper in silver or white paint, or on white paper in black ink, and no matter what, you’ll end up with your own, one of a kind moon phase art print. The instructor will have ideas for how to carve your stamp, as well as scrap paper for you to explore your imagination and full moon inspiration!

Class fee is $40 with a $10 materials fee payable to the instructor. All materials provided. Register at Circle of Stitches' website here.
