Program Description

Event Details

Letterboxing combines artistic ability with “treasure-hunting” in parks and forests that the whole family can enjoy. Participants seek out hidden letterboxes by following clues to their prize: a rubber stamp—often hand-carved—to stamp into one’s own personal logbook.

Join us and learn an overview of the hobby, what is letterboxing and how do you get started. Each participant will have the opportunity to choose an image (or create your own) to transfer and carve on a rubber stamp during class.

Perfect for stamping your own gift tags, greeting cards, or wrapping paper for the holiday season! 

About the Presenter

Michael Kennedy and his family have been letterboxing since 2006 and have found more than a thousand letterboxes in 15+ different states. His favorite part of the hobby is creating mini-works of art by carving stamps of a wide range of subjects and finding unique hiding spots including in Darien.
