Make Lounge – Rubber stamping

November 18th 2009

Rubber stamp workshop
I took my second class at the Make Lounge this weekend – a festive rubber stamping workshop led by Louise Best.

my first rubber stamp
Like the first class, it was a heap of fun as well as being very informative and creative. The process was easier than I expected, using the special tools to carve our designs into the surprisingly soft rubber, then mounting the stamps onto wooden handles.

my handmade stamps
I left with four hand-made rubber stamps and the beginnings of yet another new hobby. I’m going to use the stamps to make all my gift tags and wrapping paper for Christmas.

    Helen, I know you can buy the rubber at any local craft store. I adore the little birdie and tree Katie. What perfect little tags for your gifts.

    I'm so jealous that you live close to the Make Lounge. I wish we had stuff like that here, in California!

    Makes me want to live in London even more than I already do (went in May. LOVED IT!)

    Oh Oh stamping is very addictive – it starts with a shoe box and grows very quickly – lovely stamps though – birdie is cute
