Embellishing Wood: Learn from Two Masters

Two internationally known woodworkers, Graeme Priddle and Melissa Engler, return to BARN for a three-day workshop focused on techniques for embellishing wooden objects with texture and color.

The first two days will be devoted to exploring decorative techniques and personalizing them as you learn to use power carvers and wood burners, as well as methods for mixing and layering milk paint and acrylics. You will be able to  experiment and practice on pieces of sample wood and on objects such as wooden spheres, eggs or tusks made for you by the instructors. On the final day, you will put the techniques to work as you decorate one or more objects of your choosing. You may bring items such as a plaque, cheese board, box, bowl or other object, or work on pieces of wood or other items that will be available.

By the end of the class, you should have one or more finished objects, ready to display or to wrap up as gifts — and many ideas for decorating future projects or creating your own sculptures. You will be trained in using BARN’s high-quality wood burners and power carvers, so you can use them on later projects during Open Studio time. These tools and can also be used to
