This class is designed for students that have never touched a woodburner, as well as students that have little experience and wish to improve their skills. Do not worry if you are not an artist! Michele will teach you how to transfer a pattern and burn it.
Basic information about woodburning is covered, including: safety, wood selection and preparation, equipment selection and care, burning techniques with different types of pens, transferring patterns, correcting mistakes, adding color and finishes.
There will be a selection of patterns to choose from to create a small class project.
Note to interested woodcarvers/woodworkers:
This class will teach you woodburning skills that are best to master on a flat surface before you start woodburning round/carved pieces.
What to bring to class: Bring your enthusiasm, variable-temperature/wire-tip woodburning equipment and woodburning pens, materials money, and a pencil/pen. For a complete detailed list of equipment you'll need, see Michele's website at www.ParsonsWoodArtistry.com and look under the Classes tab. If you do not have equipment, sign up for one of the loaner kits she has available on a first-requested basis. We will break for an hour for lunch each day (usually around noon). You can bring snacks, lunch, and drinks.
