What you'll do

Discover one of the most ancient, awesome and fun forms of printmaking in the known universe, while surrounded by South Bay creativity at its finest, and embrace your inner weird carver at the most unusual art space in California! No previous art expertise is required! I will teach you everything you need to know about making your own original 2 inch squared block printing rubber stamp artwork. You create your own 2 inch masterpiece or pick one of my unique 2 inch designs, transfer it onto the rubber carving block (we provide), carve it out (with our tools), make your handle and stamp everything in town until your hearts content! I will guide you every step the way, with creative techniques, best practices and safety tips. I will also provide a uniquely weird environment loaded with inspiration and provide all the tools and materials required, and the only weird art bar in California, so that you have the best crazy carving experience ever! The class is held at “Embrace the Weird” inside “Crafted at the Port of LA” - the South Bays premiere arts and crafts experience center and marketplace. Come early or stay after to explore 30+ studios, galleries, hand-made shops and enjoy an adult beverage at our onsite craft brewery!
