The weather was awful for the November Evening SDA meeting (sheets for rain). Only two brave souls made. We had so much fun I thought we would try it again (hope the weather is better this time). The Starbucks on Olive way turned out to be a very nice place to meet. We had a room with a table and stools to sit on while we carved stamps. And of course there was easy access to any hot beverage you could want. What a great way to end the day! They even have a small parking lot.
Between now and the January meeting take moment to consider what shapes you are drawn to and might want to carve. Bring some examples. Are you drawn to linear shapes, circles, or maybe shapes from nature like leaf shapes. We will talk about what shapes keep turning up in your work and then we will carve rubber stamps (out of erasers). I will have paint and ink to try out our new stamps. During the evening you will be able to make at least two (maybe three) stamps which you can stamp separately or combine to make new designs.
