Stamp making in Singapore:
I’ve always wanted to make my own stamp so I’ll never have to bring a stack of namecards to promote my blog while traveling.
So when the the good people at BeMyGuest invited me to a stamp making workshop, I jumped on the opportunity to create my own stamp.
The workshop was conducted by a lady called Jo, who started Lovesprouts to fund her hobby and spread the craft. Like any craftwork, stamp making is really easy to pick up, but difficult to master. In our basic 2hr workshop, we learnt the basics, carved 3 stamps, and attempted to make a basic card. Each class is conducted in a small group setting, so learning is really intimate and Jo really makes an effort to approach everyone individually for help. The workshop also comes with a basic starting kit which includes a carving knife, ink pad, rubber block. And of course you get to bring home the stamps you made for the day!
Shall let the pictures do the rest of the talking!

Stamps made by Jo and other students. See the minons?
The hedgehog was the second stamp of the day and was used to teach us intricate control
The possibilities are pretty endless, with overlays and various other techniques
My final masterpiece! Compared to the printed version, which is better?
Initially I thought that stamp making was a very feminine thing, but after the workshop and checking out some cool designs online, I think it can be for everyone. It can get pretty complicated as well so the possibilities are endless!
So if you’re interested to take this up, check out the workshop at BeMyGuest. It’s a little pricey in my opinion but hey, where else are you going to learn this?
