Craft night, basic printmaking

Last night I started the week off right by hosting a casual craft night. I love sitting down with friends to just make stuff. Sometimes I get really focused on work and I forget to craft for fun, which I think is a very important part of the creative process.

I led crafters in a basic printmaking demonstration, teaching how to carve rubber blocks and potato stamps.

We had lots of fun and good conversation while getting our hands inky.

Dirty hands surely didn’t stop me from snacking! Makes me want to host craft night every night.
