About this event:
Join Renee from It's David and Renee for a creative and memorable woodburning experience! Bring a BFF, spouse, parent, or friend and create some memories while you learn the unique art of pyrography by creating your own beautiful artwork. You’ll take home your own pyrography folk art and memories that last a lifetime.
In this 2 hour class, we'll start with instruction on how to use a professional woodburning tool and time to practice on a scrap piece of wood.
Next, you'll get step-by-step instructions on how to transfer the design, how to coordinate hand movements to get the desired burn lines, and how to add watercolors to your art. You will also learn about wood burning safety, finishes, and wood art aftercare.
You'll learn about the different ways to burn lines and curves, as well as simple shading techniques. You may even begin to develop your own "style" of wood burning.
Renee encourages you to explore your own creativity, and she loves it when you bring your own designs and ideas to the table.
This class will be relaxed and full of fun, where there are no "mistakes." You'll be encouraged to let go of worries about standards of perfection, and just enjoy the freedom of creating in this medium that is tactile, meditative, and empowering.
