Letter Boxing: Linocut Carving & Adventure

$45

with Virginia Slawson

Calendar Jan 23, 2018 at 6 pm, runs for 3 weeks

Letter Boxing is a fun and affordable activity with an artistic bent, which may also include a geo-specific and/or historic focus. Students will learn to carve their design into a rubber stamp blank using linoleum block-cutting tools during the first two class sessions. The third and final class will be a field trip (date TBD) to find a local Letter Box. Letter Boxing consists of the real-life search for a small box that the box owner has planted for you to find. Once found, you participate by stamping the box’s logbook with your personal stamp. Thousands of caches are hidden and maintained world-wide, and are discovered by using clues and specific directions and/or coordinates that are provided via an online database. Leave an imprint of your stamp there and imprint their stamp into your logbook—which becomes a unique, treasured record of your excursions in the hunt for more and more letterboxes. A supply fee of $35 is payable to the instructor.
