Are you ready to learn a new skill? Do you need an outlet for your creativity? Rose Center is pleased to offer a new class in woodburning. Michele Howe will be the instructor of a four-hour workshop on Saturday, April 28, from 10 AM to 2 PM. The fee for the class is $40 and includes all materials. Howe has wood burners for five students to use; she will take more in class, but they will need to provide their own burner.
What Howe loves about wood burning is that it is very rewarding. When she was first learning how to do wood burning, she was surprised by how fun it was right off the bat. You don’t have to be an artist to do it, Howe says. Now her pyrographic art is amazingly detailed and sometimes she combines wood burning with painting for beautiful multi-colored effects.
During the workshop students will complete a wood-burned project on an 8 x 10 piece of birch. In the class, participants will learn how to: choose and prepare their wood surface, develop or choose a pattern, transfer the pattern to the wood, safely use a wood burner to create a design, add color to their piece and finish a piece.
To register for the class or for more information call Rose Center at 423-581-4330. Pre registration with payment is required. Rose Center is located at 442 W. Second North St. in Morristown.
