About this event:
Join Renee from It's David and Renee for an intro-level 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 burned ornaments and memories that last!
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 your design, how to coordinate hand movements to get the desired burn lines, and how to add color to your ornaments 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!
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 the parking lot adjacent to the building
Q: What do I need to bring?
A: Just yourself! Don't forget your glasses, if you wear them.
Q: Will I leave with my ornaments?
A: Yes! You will take home your finished ornaments 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. Feel free to bring your own templates or designs if you'd like.
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 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? Umm...
A: Preferably not, because food grease or sticky residue will mar the surface of the wood by leaving fingerprints and oily smudges. This cannot be fixed during class. However, if you bring along a snack or a drink, I ask that you be extremely careful around the machines.
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.***
