Come to Brighton and make a beautiful, unique artwork from reclaimed wood & customise it to your own style.
During this 5 hour workshop you will have the freedom to design your own simple silhouette artwork & learn the skills needed to create it from reclaimed wood.
You can either find a vector design online and I will show you how to replicate it onto wood, or you can bring a printed photo, or even freestyle your design & draw it by hand it’s up to you.
You will choose the colour scheme for the background of your artwork too, that way you can tailor it to fit with your decor & style.
Your design can be absolutely anything you can think of, from your pet dog to a boat, maybe you would like to create a design from nature such a tree, mountains or a snowflake?
You could even chose a font and a word to make into a wooden artwork – it really is totally up to you.
You can come away from this class with something totally unique that you have made yourself & the skills to replicate the build at home as many times as you like.
You will learn to use a variety of different powertools while you create your masterpiece – from sliding mitre chop saws to jigsaws, pin guns and scroll saws! (See tools list below.)
We finish off this build by framing the artwork ready to hang on your wall or place on a shelf at home – to frame we will learn to cut mitres and join them which is another useful skill that will come in handy for a variety of other tasks later in crafting!
This is for you if you are artistic or creative, if you want to learn how to use powertools & make something cool in the process, or if you live far away and don’t have the space to take a larger item home.

There is a great opportunity to be artistic & customise your artwork to your own tastes by choosing the colour paint/s you use and choosing the design you will cut out, you are encouraged to be original and come up with your own ideas to suit your style and decor. We use reclaimed wood for the build which we will choose from the offcuts at the Woodstore. Various paint colours, wood stains and waxes will be provided depending on the look you want to go for. We use a scroll saw & jigsaw to cut out the shapes & a chop saw or circular saw to make straight and mitred wood cuts.
