If you're sick of knitting and don't have the patience for sourdough, may we suggest a new creative iso hobby? 

Abbotsford print studio Print Safari has launched DIY lino printing kits so you can get quaran-crafty at home. 

The Print Pals Lino Kits were created by Print Safari as a way to "to connect people through craft". Holly and Ash from Print Safari wanted to make kits that would bring a smile to communities, so they designed the kits around the idea of creating a lino printed postcard you can send to neighbours, friends and family.

Each kit includes one piece of double-sided lino, one interchangeable carving tool (with five carving blades), four A5 postcards, four A5 envelopes, one 50ml bottle of relief ink, one roller, one palette knife and a set of instructions to get you carving and stamping your own postcards in no time.

The Print Pals Lino Kits are available for pre-order currently and costs $85. Print Safari is also donating ten per cent from each kit sold to one of three Indigenous organisations (Djirra, Literacy for Life and Children's Ground), which you can choose at checkout. 

Print Safari has also released a Totes Amazing Lino Kit for anyone wanting to craft your own lino-printed tote bag.

Head to Print Safari's website for more info and to order.
