Title: Folk School PreView: “Wood-burned Pocket Flower Press”
Join us for an evening of fun and folklife at our Folk School PreView! Held once a month during Burritt’s “Cocktails on the View” students will participate in a two hour introductory class taught by a Folk School instructor and enjoy cocktails and appetizers while creating their own project. Arrive at 5:00 pm and visit The View to purchase a drink and see the Huntsville skyline from Burritt’s 3000 square foot overlook. The class will begin at 5:30 and end by 7:30 giving you another thirty minutes to enjoy The View after class ends.
A small charcuterie box of meats, cheeses, and other other snacks is available for purchase for $12. Please see ticket below. If you order a small charcuterie box, you will receive it upon check-in.
These “previews” of our Folk School are perfect for socializing with friends or date night. Have a group of 6 or more and interested in a private event? Email email@example.com.
Description: Immerse yourself in an unforgettable evening and discover the art of wood-burning alongside local pyrographer, Lauren Concepcion, as you create your very own pocket-sized travel flower press. Under Lauren’s expert guidance, you’ll delve into the foundations of wood-burning, master the essential techniques, and learn about burner usage and maintenance. Step-by-step, she’ll reveal her artistic process for each project and provide a range of designs to choose from. All necessary materials will be provided.
As a delightful bonus, Lauren will offer freshly foraged, cut flowers to kickstart your flower pressing journey!
Instructor: Lauren Concepcion Originally a psychology graduate, with the intent on studying landscape architecture, Lauren has explored many creative paths. Getting her start about 6 years ago, all these paths eventually morphed and converged into something entirely different: wood-burning. Being a drawer and maker of things all her life, Lauren believes in filling our environments with thoughtful and meaningful pieces; that hand-made items are special, purposeful and invaluable. She hopes to share this belief, along with the reawakening of this forgotten technique, with others. Lauren Concepcion is a self-taught pyrographer and owner of her local pyrography business, LC Pyrography & Design. You can find Lauren at LCPyrography.com and on Instagram, @lc.pyrographydesign.
