Learn about the history of foil stamping in this 3 hour introductory workshop. Hot stamp brass type and ornaments on leather, board and paper. Bind simple pamphlet-stitch notebooks as a group. Learn resources for finding affordable and repurposed supplies to foil stamp on, and bring your own scraps to foil stamp. The class will troubleshoot what materials will work and what won't work. Expect to bring home some printed greeting cards or another hand-stamped object (if you feel so inspired!)
