Workshop Overview

In this workshop, participants will learn about the tools, techniques and strategies needed to create beautiful woodburning art. We will prepare our wood for burning with sandpaper and sketch out our designs. Next, we will practice burning techniques on scrap wood. Participants will then burn their designs into their wood and decide whether or not they want to add color with acrylic paint. Wood stain will also be available for finishing touches and refinement.
