This one-day class is ideal for anyone interested in learning about woodburning or improving their woodburning skills. All necessary tools and supplies are provided. In the morning you will work on a basic project of your choice (there are many to choose from) to familiarize you with using a woodburning tool. In the afternoon each participant will work on the colour 'fireman' project pictured above. Doug will guide you through the process of completing each project. This is an interesting and fun workshop where each participant should take home two finished pieces.
There will be a 45-minute break for lunch - participants can bring a bag lunch or there are several fast-food options in Martensville (A&W, McDonalds, Subway, Tim Horton's, DQ, Taco Time, etc.) if you prefer. Coffee and tea will be provided, but please bring your own mug.
