MAKER MAKER: Hand-carved Stamps with Tara K. Wells

March 15, 2017

Join us for our final MAKER MAKER workshop of the semester and learn to make hand-carved stamps with Sackville artist Tara K. Wells.

Tara is an award-winning animator and freelance designer. A maker of many things, Tara often uses found or discarded items such as springs, plastics and typewriter parts as her art materials. Working in sculpture, installation, animation and quilting, Tara’s multidisciplinary practice is rooted in a strong sense of play.

At this workshop, participants will transform ordinary erasers into hand-carved stamps. Learn tricks for transferring drawings onto erasers and tips for carving and stamping. Use your freshly made stamps to create your own one-of-a-kind postcards.

MAKER MAKER is a monthly program of seriously small after-hours art workshops. Led by diverse Maker Mentors, each workshop introduces a pocket-sized art project that can be made in two hours or less. Designed for accomplished and aspiring makers alike, MAKER MAKER is for anyone interested in making small things by hand with friends and fellow makers. This informal workshop series explores how working small can be practical, portable and playful, economical, sharable and even wearable.

MAKER MAKER is free and all materials are provided, no registration required.
