Stamp Art Holiday Card Workshop

Stamp Art Holiday Card Workshop, Thursday, December 6, 6:30pm - 8:30pm, Toronto's First Post Office (260 Adelaide St. East), $20, register online.

Celebrate the holiday season by spending an evening making beautiful seasonal greetings! Create unique holiday cards that highlight holiday stamps from around the world. Each person will take home two sets of Stamp Art holiday cards and novelty envelopes.

Who will be teaching?
Celine Chen began collecting stamps at a very young age, in Hong Kong, under the tutelage of her father. Since 2014, she began illustrating memories from her childhood ‒ the trams, ferries, foods and markets ‒ using pencil crayons, with each drawing anchored by a cancelled stamp. Her works are also about Canada, her home for over four decades, and more specifically about Toronto, the city that she loves.
