WRAPPING PAPER PRINT PARTY

Date: Saturday November 9th
Time: 1:00pm - 4:30pm
Location: Keephouse Studio, 5813 Hwy 207 Seaforth
Cost: $65.00 + tax

Bring your gift giving to the next level with handmade wrapping paper! In this afternoon class we will work together to make really lovely block printed papers, cards and gift tags.

Each participant will be given a 4x6 block to carve a design(s) of their choosing. Since this is a shorter afternoon class I recommend bringing a few ideas of what you may want to carve with you. You can split your block into smaller blocks so you can fit in more than one image (ie printing hats and gloves, holly and berries, trees and stars). I will also have some blocks that I have carved that you can use to print with as well. Each participant will end the class with a stock of hand printed papers and other wrapping materials.

*During this class you will be using my studio carving tools. If you wish to purchase one from me I will be selling them for $10.00/each
