Pyrography Workshop at Polk Museum of Art
Jan 20, 2018
10:00 am - 5:00 pm
What is pyrography, you ask? Pyrography refers to wood burning and Polk Museum of Art at Florida Southern College will host a one-day workshop introducing the traditional form of art to Museum members as well as nonmembers.
Students will learn how to achieve a range of tones and shades using a special pen-like tool and bits to burn their designs onto a soft wood surface. Instructor Rachel Stewart also will offer instruction on adding color to the finished product to create the finished artwork.
The deadline to register is January 14 and can be done at polkmuseumofart.org/classes.
