Creative Woodworking Workshop – Make your own Art using a Scrollsaw

£110.00 6 hours

(5 customer reviews)

Come to Brighton and learn how to make your own artwork from reclaimed wood using power-tools,  then customise it to match your decor & style & take it home!

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 silhouette vector design online, which you will replicate 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?

Some students like to create a word in their chosen font to make into a wooden artwork – it really is totally up to you.

Come away from this class with something totally unique, that you have made yourself, & gain the skills to replicate it as many times as you like.

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 your artwork 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 in crafting & DIY!

 

This is for you if you are artistic & want to learn new creative woodworking skills with power-tools , & make unique decor from salvaged materials.

    I was apprehensive how well I would manage as I had never done any woodwork before, but should not have worried! Charis took us through all the tools & how to make the wooden art in great detail so I felt at ease and had fun. I still can’t believe how good my new artwork is! Neither can anyone else actually! I’ll be back, maybe for something bigger next time. Thank You so much xx
