Pictorial postmarks connect people to a specific moment in time, like an annual strawberry festival, a hamlet's bicentennial, or a village celebrating its first aircraft in flight. With a self addressed stamped envelope sent to a temporary address, we can form an intimate connection with these moments via a pictorial postmark from a small town we'll never visit, honoring an event we'll never experience.
In this workshop, Renée will lead us in creating our own personal pictorial postmarks. How would you commemorate yourself? With one seal, we will be able to share our deep memories with strangers aching to bond with human achievement.
