An inspiring class on using everyday objects you most likely already have at home to do some cool printing, good pace and good visuals.
Lovely inspiration and some really cool ideas in here! I really like to see how the simple things and shapes turn out pretty fascinating...

I work as the head of product at a startup, but when I'm not at the office, I'm always making things of my own. I especially love illustrating, writing and design.

Here at Skillshare, I usually focus on creating classes in printing -- everything from stencils to woodblock.

I find printmaking inspiring because anyone can quickly start making successful prints with very few tools. It really opens the doors to producing a vision of your own on all kinds of materials: t-shirts, walls, stationery, stickers and so much more.
