About this event:

Join Renee from It's David and Renee for a fun mandala + woodburning class! Bring a BFF, spouse, parent, or friend and create some memories while you learn the art of pyrography. You'll take home your own finished art and lifelong memories from learning this new art form.

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 of choice, 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 and texture techniques. You may even begin to develop your own "style" of wood burning. Renee encourages you to explore your own creativity!

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, sensational, and rewarding.


FAQs 

Q: Where should I park?

A: Please utilize street parking on Bridge St. or the large parking lot across the street next to the Post Office.

 

Q: Do I have to wear a mask? 

A: Please follow the rules of the shop and/or the CDC.

 

Q: Will I leave with my board? 

A: Yes! You will take home your finished art 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 reservation fees, 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/shop policies, and our personal emergencies.

 

Q: When and where to arrive? 

A: Just get there a few minutes early!

 

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.

We ask that you not keep food or drink on the crafting 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.***
