Fantastic class, extensive walk throughs of all the tool, materials and steps for stamp carving for beginners! I felt engaged and included the whole time, and learnt so much. I a confident now to take this skill further on my own!

Today I was very pleased with my results! I have done a little stamp carving before but it was great to get some expert tips. Rowan did not disappoint. Her experience and knowledge of carving is vast. She had some great ideas for repeat patterns too.
Rowan is a great teacher with clear instructions. The class was well paced and we all managed a print by the end.
Thanks Rowan.

I learned so much so quickly! Rowan is welcoming and informal, so I felt comfortable immediately. Very easy to follow and lots of direction so I can continue to skill up once the class is over.
