Weekends in the Studio! DIY Stamp Posters with Nona Abdallah

DATE: Saturday, April 6th, 2024
TIME: 1pm- 4pm
LOCATION: 2nd floor, Education Studio
COST: Free with regular gallery admission and free for AWE members

Get ready to unleash your creativity with our DIY Stamp Poster Making activity! Using simple household materials like cardboard, foam, and styrofoam, participants will craft their own unique stamps in various shapes and sizes. From geometric patterns to nature-inspired designs, the possibilities are endless! After creating their stamps, participants will roll paint or ink onto their designs and press them onto paper to create stunning posters. With the addition of wooden letter stamps, participants can also add personalised text to their artwork. This hands-on activity encourages experimentation and imagination while turning everyday items into works of art. Whether you’re a seasoned crafter or a beginner, this activity promises fun and artistic expression for all!


Looking toward May 1st (International Day of Solidarity of Working People), participants are welcome to leave their works at AWE for a community display in spring 2024. You can also take a photo of your artwork and submit by email to The community display will be installed from April 22 to May 13, 2024 in the WFCU Eco Space on the third floor at AWE.

Weekends in the Studio is supported by Anne Safranyos and Family.
