Wine and Design Virtual Handi-hour: The Stamp Edition
September 23 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm UTC+0Free
“Errors,” “Freaks,” and “Oddities” are all terms for postage with printing mistakes that can make stamps exceptionally valuable. Join the Smithsonian American Art Museum and the National Postal Museum for this joint virtual happy hour program. Grab your favorite beverage and learn how printing mistakes happen and what makes these faulty stamps so prized during a conversation lead by Lauren Maloy of the National Postal Museum. Then join Gloria Kenyon, acting head of public programs at the Smithsonian American Art Museum for a step-by-step crafting tutorial on how to make a stamp out of household materials like wine corks, Styrofoam, and even vegetables. Gloria also shows you how to turn accidents, like that coffee mug ring on your nice watercolor paper, into beautiful artworks. Space is limited. A full materials list is provided after registration.
