Class Time: 12 hours over 2 days

Experience: Beginner and Beyond

This course teaches students how to create their own stamping blocks with found objects, “fun foam”, and other ephemera.  Then, the block party begins!  We’ll use the blocks and alternate objects to create one-of-a-kind printed fabrics, which students will take home to include in their quilts or other fiber art projects.
