Who knew that rubber cutting can be such an arduous task? But let me tell you, it was wonderful and worth it.
I was extremely giddy when the print came out. I'm proud of my work.
And I'm definitely proud of the imperfections that came with it.
This might be a craft that I could carry on for a long time. The carving part must be part of my genes since both grandfathers were excellent carpenters. My maternal grandfather even fashioned his own hammer handle made from a discarded guava branch! At the end of the workshop, I was tired, but I felt peace. Each dig of the tool was therapeutic to say the least. I was thoroughly surprised, and I'm extremely happy, since I joined this workshop, just because.
How about you? Have you done anything lately (crafts, or otherwise) that surprised you?
