In this fun 2.5 hr hour class students will learn how to design and create patterns using stamps made from their own designs.
You will learn about using images to make patterns on paper and fabric.
Students will explore the use of ink colours and different placements of their design to create a pattern.
You will design then create a stamp of your own, and use it to decorate a set of cards, envelopes, gift tags and wrapping paper. There will be examples to look at for ideas.
