Rachelle’s Class: Saturday, August 31. 9AM-1PM


Create this amazing Magically Mixed-Media Box by Rachelle Panagarry. We will start with an introduction to using wood burning tools, with safety guidelines and procedures, and also find out about the different methods of mark making on the wood with the different tool fittings.  We will also explore how to transfer patterns from paper onto the wood using carbon paper or tracing papers. You may wish to try the lettering around the edges of the box and add colour to the edges of the box.

Students will be provided with a portrait template by Rachelle. We will start by painting the face with acrylic paint in chosen flesh tone (mixing guidance provided byRachelle, plus paper reference) Once the face is dry, it will be covered in a layer of PVA and a sheet of mulberry paper will be laid on top of the glue.  Once this is dry, we will use the water-color paints to get the fantastic 'bleed' effect.  Rachelle will guide students through shading and allowing the paint to work to create the bleed - including how to rescue if too much water is added.  After drying, the face it cut out and put to one side for later.

You will also learn how to use wood burning for future projects, by creating your own stencils using the 'stencil burner' tool. These stencils can be used in later art journalling or even for home renovation projects.
On Sunday we will scan everyone's project and print 6 cards for you to trade with fellow student with your beautiful art!

Jamie’s Class:  Saturday August 31, 2 – 6 pm
