When: Wednesday 18 October, 2017. 6.30pm - 9.30pm
Where: 1/177 Beavers Rd. Northcote

Learn how to create your own useful and beautiful stamps using traditional lino carving techniques. The evening will involve- developing your stamp design (it can be as simple or as complex as you like!), carving it into a Lino block and then using it to create a print onto fabric and paper. Draw inspiration from the lovely surrounds of the Merri Creek or bring your own drawings and ideas to translate into your print. You can even use a name or a word! There will be guidance throughout the whole process and lots of inspiration from books and around the studio to help you get creative.
Your stamp will be long lasting and will open up a whole world of decorating ideas including personalised wrapping paper, gift cards, name tags or decorated fabric!
Tea Towels or Mini Fabric Banners for you to print onto with your design are available to pre-order while booking or there will be a selection on the night for purchase.
Roz Slade is a Melbourne textile designer and maker interested in supporting society’s deep social connection to textiles and nurturing an interest in the therapeutic act of hand-making. After graduating Textile Design and Development at RMIT, where she majored in weave and printmaking, she stepped away from the ethical drift of fast fashion and textile waste, to create a modest range of high-quality products featuring sustainable methods and ethically sourced materials under the brand Be Kind Textiles.
Spending the following years exploring every craft within her reach in her own personal practice, she is sharing her results and a lifelong love of art and textiles with willing students.
