Looking for an opportunity to be creative and spread some joy to friends and family in the process? Join us for this workshop where you will learn how to carve your own design or text into soft easy-cut blocks and then how to properly print it onto postcards. The design is up to you, but there will be a focus on creating designs with an uplifting image or quote.
All levels welcome!
