The class was excellent - the teacher was knowlegeable and patient, all the supplies required for the class was readily available. The option to purchase a kit to continue stamp making at home is really helpful! Overall a fun and interactive class! Looking forward to making more stamps at home!

It was a fantastic experience at Handmaker's Factory. Nichola taught us how to carve stamps and apply them on fabrics, cards, and paper. We drank tea, ate homemade biscuits and chatted amongst each other. Well worth the price and the amount of time you have at the studio. Would go back.

This course gave me a fantastic overview of how to create impactful stamps. I left with a gorgeous magpie stamp that I adore and will be using it to make tea towel gifts for friends. A great day in a gorgeous space with a wonderful passionate teacher !!!
