Concertina Book and Rubber Stamp Making
This workshop is a chance to learn how to make rubber stamps and concertina folded books.
You will experiment with both techniques learning how to master cutting the rubbers into different shapes and folding paper into book forms. You are welcome to bring along your own images along for inspiration or we have plenty of designs to share. You will have time to experiment and create your own book and set of stamps which you will use to decorate the pages. You may choose a random design or narrative, whatever takes your fancy.
There will be plenty of hot drinks, biscuits, helpful advice and friendly chat. All materials are provided so come along and have fun making a piece to take home.
