Creating carved stamps to make intricate repeated patterns is very rewarding, relaxing, and fun. You can use your eraser carvings to decorate paper, wood, and fabric for unique surface patterns. We will be carving erasers for next Monday's Mixed Media class!
You will need very few basic supplies to get started carving your own designs.

A few weeks ago, we learned how to make a cute origami party dress and coat. This Friday, we are going to fold a gentlemen's coat, shirt, and tie. These outfits can be as formal or as whimsical as you want them to be, depending on the colors and patterns you choose. You will need a sheet of 6" square paper for the coat, a 3" x 6" sheet for the shirt, and a 2" square for the tie. Let's have some folding fun this coming Friday!
If you missed the party dress and coat live class, you can view it any time by clicking here.
You are invited to join us on Friday, November 27 at 1 p.m. Pacific Time / 4 p.m. Eastern Time for a post Thanksgiving celebration or Friendsgiving as it is commonly referred to. Registration and event details are available here.
