September 24 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm$65.00
Create your own Colorful Leaves Coasters in this 2.5 hour class with Crystal Bailar of Mosstangle Arts
In this workshop you’ll craft four custom leaf coasters (or wall art) using the art of pyrography with guided instruction.
You’ll learn the basic skills of decorative wood burning, which, although dating back centuries, can be expressed with fun, contemporary designs. You’ll also learn about different kinds of wood you can use, design and transfer techniques, how to apply color, as well as finishes you can use to protect your wood.
You’ll spend some time practicing the basic techniques on a small scrap of wood, then you’ll move on to create your mini masterpieces, burning a leaf on each of two pieces of Aspen wood. Finally you learn how to apply watercolor paint to wood creating lovely colorful leaves. You will have the opportunity to apply an oil finish to protect your wood, or take home unfinished if you wish.
All supplies and equipment are provided.
Please bring clothing you don’t mind getting paint on. If you have long hair, you will need to bring something to tie up your hair.
