Deadline to Register: June 2nd at 5:00 pm
Description: Learn the techniques of woodburning, with local pyrographer Lauren Concepcion, while burning your own version of Lauren’s, “Starry Rocket”. Created to represent both Huntsville’s space history, as well as it’s growing art community, the design features The Space & Rocket Center in the style of van Gogh’s, “The Starry Night”. No experience is necessary. This class is suited for both beginners & intermediate woodburners. Lauren will teach her step-by-step process for completing wood-burning projects, while teaching students basic wood-burning techniques, as well as how to use & care for their wood-burners. All designs will be provided & pre-transferred onto a 5” wood plaque. Students will get to woodburn, as well as watercolor, to complete their project.
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.

No long sleeves or fabric that cannot be rolled up or moved out of the way of the pen while burning. If students have their own burners they would like to bring they may do so.
