Create!: Handmade Christmas – cards, wrap and paper products
Receiving a handmade item, especially at Christmas always feels special doesn’t it? So why not make someone’s day and have a go at creating some handmade joy!? Or perhaps you are looking to create some one off paper decorations for your festive home? In this playful workshop run by illustrator and WYPW member Lisa Stubbs you will be introduced to the process of mono-printing using paper stencils. This is a simple yet very effective technique allowing you to ‘draw with scissors’ and create bold multi layered prints of your chosen imagery. Of course this technique isn’t just for Christmas, it is easily transferable to a variety of imagery ideas both illustrative or abstract – let your imagination run wild with the scissors and the layering process.
The workshop will introduce you to the basic techniques to get started, inking up, layering and using the press and then it’s over to you to let the creative juices flow!
If you have a hectic life and have to squeeze your creative time into a tightly-packed schedule, our CREATE! Saturday Sessions are for you! You can have your weekend morning lie-in, learn a new skill and indulge your creativity, and get home in time for tea! All our workshops are suitable for beginners and are taught by expert tutors, and the price of the course includes all materials.
