Print workshop with Yellow Owl

Yellow owl workshop @ UO

I spent a fun Thursday lunchbreak in the local Urban Outfitters yesterday, taking a stamp-cutting workshop with Christine Schmidt of fabulous SF-based stationery and jewellery studio Yellow Owl Workshop.

Christine was on hand giving tips and advice, as well as signing copies of her new book, Print Workshop, which covers all sorts of do-at-home printing projects, from block-printing to stencils.

I had a quick flick through and it looks like a very comprehensive guidebook to DIY printing, with tips on materials and techniques, as well as several pages of Christine’s own designs to use for personal projects.

Lookit, I made a little hello bubble stamp to take home! A little rough, but not bad for a lunchbreaks’ work.

  1. The book looks great, and it's such a good idea to have these workshops. I remember cutting lino at college while doing a printing module and hacking more out of my fingers – oww. I'm impressed with your first lunch break effort! Much better than what I did over a term, haha

  2. SOLD! I just ordered a copy of the book. It looks wonderful, and I really love your hello bubble! Well done!
