Etsy Hands-On: Block Printing

The holidays are approaching and we have the perfect project to help wrap gifts in style. Join Leah Goren in the Brooklyn Etsy Labs for Hands-On: Block Printing and learn how to carve your own stamp and create repeat patterned wrapping paper.  We will also raffle two $50 Etsy gift cards during each session. Who knows, you may leave with gift wrap and a gift!

Leah is an illustrator who specializes in surface pattern design. Items in her shop, leahgoren, are made from a mix of hand-stamped and digitally printed textiles. Leah will guide us through the designing, carving and printing process. You can make a simple repeat pattern on paper with one image, create a three-dimensional effect by using the same image with different colors, or swap stamps with a friend to create a collaborative wrapping paper with multiple designs. Take a peek into Leah’s studio here.
