STAMP CARVING WORKSHOP

Rubber stamp carving is a popular activity enjoyed by the young and young at heart – from teenage school girls to grown up office workers. Most simply cannot resist the charm and appeal of stamps, which they find so “kawai” (cute in Japanese). Made originally for commercial purposes, they gradually found their way into crafts. Coupled with an increasing array of stamp pads in every colour imaginable, stamp carving and printing is definitely here to stay!
