About this event:
Join Renee from It's David and Renee for a gnomie woodburning experience! Bring a BFF, spouse, parent, or friend and create some memories while you learn the unique art of pyrography. You’ll take home your own decorative pyrography art and memories that last a lifetime!
In this 3-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 your design, how to coordinate hand movements to get the desired burn lines, and how to add color to your art if you choose. 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 creative notions!
Around the mid-way point, we can stop for a break and grab a coffee or snack. These refreshments are not included in the price of the class.
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. See you there!
Q: Where should I park?
A: Please utilize street parking on Carol St to keep the parking lot spaces freed up.
Q: Do I have to wear a mask?
A: Please follow the rules of the coffee shop and/or the CDC.
Q: Will I leave with my artwork?
A: Yes! You will take home your artwork at the end of the class!
Q: Can I create a different design instead?
A: Sure, but the instruction will be on the designs provided.
Q: What is your refund policy?
A: We will always grant you a future class credit if you're unable to attend the class, but due to the nature of renting and reserving, we cannot give refunds. But that's okay because you'll have a class credit to redeem at whatever future class you choose!
However, if the class is canceled by us at any time, you will be given the choice of a refund or a future class credit. This includes cancellations due to winter weather, COVID restrictions, store/mall policies, and personal emergencies.
Q: When and where to arrive?
A: Just get there a few minutes early. Class will be held in the small back room.
Q: Are food and drink allowed? Kind of.
A: Food grease or sticky residue will mar the surface of the wood by leaving fingerprints and oily smudges. This cannot be fixed during class. Be mindful of this if you choose to burn and eat.
Be VERY careful with liquids on the table. If you spill, it can ruin your art, your neighbor's art, and kill the machines.***
***NOTE: Our professional woodburning units are expensive, and any damage incurred to our units will be the responsibility of the participant to replace. These charges can reach over $200.***
