In this evening workshop, students are guided through the introductory steps of creating faux postage a.k.a artistamps using a variety of different mixed media techniques. Gathering inspiration from mail art examples in Jennie's personal collection, attendees create their own perforated stamp sheets! Students leave class with a sheet of self-created artistamps, a useful resource guide to continue their artistamp adventure, and a multitude of ideas for more mail art projects.

Tools students should bring to class:
  • scissors or exacto knife
  • ruler (your choice; any kind will do)
  • ink pads (watercolor or otherwise) for rubber stamping
  • small size rubber stamps that would work well as postage stamp images; in-class artistamps will be approximately 1 inch wide by 1 ½ inches tall.
  • sponges, daubers, or things to create a "background"/large field of color for your stamp sheet
  • fine point pens/colored pencils for drawing  or lettering-- great for adding color, texture, or text to your stamp sheet!  
  • if you’d rather collage, feel free to bring small size ephemera/materials for collage
  • any other rubber stamping tools that you think would be fun to use in class
