30 Day Rubber Stamp Challenge

I came across the 30-day rubber stamp challenge on the excellent Facebook group 'Rubber Stamp Art'. The 30-day rubber stamp challenge consists of making a stamp a day for 30 days. 
I cheated a little bit, some days I didn't make a stamp, other days I made over 4 or 5 stamps. Once I got started it became very addictive, any free moment I made a stamp. 
Rather than making stamps which exploited the medium, such as images to be multiplied, flies, bricks, plant segments and fonts, I made stamps to be used in multiple contexts, like a chapbook printer and their collection of picture letterpress blocks.

The Art Workers' Guild Table Top Museum is back for its fourth year, in conjunction with Open House weekend. Join us for an inventive celebration of the madness and the individual and extraordinary rules of those who collect, organised by Guild member, Stephen Fowler.

Come and delight in an exhibition of 23 installations, curated by Guild members and others selected by invitation, featuring molluscs, plane spotters notebooks, stereoscopes, blank paper and the archive of Zenda, to name but a few. 

The Museum forms part of Open House Weekend.
