Learn how to make rubber stamps and turn your images into a pop-up book on this a 3-day course in the summer.

On the first day you will learn how to make single colour and multiple colour rubber stamps. You'll be taught how to register and mask your prints. You will also be taught how to make homemade stamp pads using jay cloths and drawing ink.

On the second day you will learn a variety of structures and mechanisms for pop-ups including pull-tab mechanisms. Your stamp ideas from the first day can be used as a starting point.

On the final day you will combine and develop your rubber stamps and pop-up ideas to incorporate in a limited edition pop-up book for all participants to take home.

Materials provided:
· stamp pads
· erasers
· paper
· card for bookbinding

You will need to bring:
