In Person: Woodburning Techniques
Taught by A.V. Perkins
“A.V. Does What!?” began as a traditional Do-It-Yourself blog but quickly grew to into a lifestyle platform including upcycled furniture, repurposed crafts, home/garden hacks and recipes. Her goal is to help thrifty millennials realize that life is better when you Do-It-Yourself! With appearances in HGTV, Huffington Post and BuzzFeed, A.V. is determined to change the face of DIY.
In this 2 hour workshop you'll craft a custom wood serving board using the art of pyrography aka woodburning--don’t worry, it’s nothing illegal! You’ll learn the basic techniques of decorative wood burning, which, although dating back centuries, can be expressed with fun, contemporary designs. Using a pen-like burning tool, you’ll work on small wood pieces to practice the basic technique.
Next you’ll move on to your masterpiece, etching a custom design on a wood serving board. All supplies and equipment provided.
I am excited to share with you some techniques and projects, and look forward to see your beautiful works online. Join me!
