Carving is my form of meditation. The single focus of tool cutting rubber helps me to destress - plus I have something gorgeous to print with afterwards. Carving stamps is relatively inexpensive, does not require a lot of space and is highly gratifying and addictive!

In this crafts class I will introduce you to my process of designing, carving and printing. I will share with you my materials, techniques and tips. We will talk about simple blocks, layering stamps and repeating tile stamps. You will then design and carve a small rubber block and then print with it, creating some beautiful stationery.

I have been developing my carving and printmaking skills for over 3 years and love to create gorgeous art prints and unique greeting cards. Not only do I use stamps in my daily art practice but I also love to get crafty with homemade wrapping paper and gift tags.

Class outcomes:
- Breathe, relax, carve.
- Learn basic carving techniques.
- Create some beautiful cards and take home your stamp to use again and again.

An inspiring start to a new craft! Rowan supplies a variety of materials to get you started. She demonstrated each step of the process and provided good tips from her experience. She is encouraging and helpful so that you achieve a worthwhile product at the end of the workshop.

I took my mother to the class as a surprise birthday activity and was not disappointed! Rowan was a wonderful teacher and host - knowledgeable, warm + friendly, and well prepared for the class. The space was inviting, all the materials were available for us, and we were able to make speedy progress in our block printing skills during the class! Highly recommended.

The class was so relaxing and I learnt so much at the same time !! The teacher was fantastic she really shared with us so much knowledge on block printing and we where really able to get our creative juices flowing. The venue was beautiful in a Victorian house with so much art works and beautiful outdoor surroundings - highly recommended.

The class was fun. Rowen was a very organised, friendly, and helpful tutor. I would highly recommend you do a workshop with her if you ever get the opportunity. I came home with a stamp and card. Yah !!!!!!

My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed the class. We're inspired to carry on block printing at home. Rowan was lovely- very informative and generous. Cute house, good light and very funky. We loved it.


I am really interested in learning how to block print on to fabrics (preferably heavier fabrics like linen and wool). Is that something you would be able to accommodate?

The main part of the class is carving the stamp but we can talk about design choice for fabric printing. I am also happy for her to bring some linen on request, and I can provide several types of fabric block printing ink.
