In this work­shop we will explore using wood to create a whim­si­cal brooch from start to finish! Begin­ning with: some of the elements and prin­ci­ples of design, and what makes a compelling compo­si­tion. Students will also learn about sanding and shaping the wood, prepar­ing it for paint, paint­ing tech­niques, and finish­ing the wood. Finally, students will learn how to make cold connec­tions to complete the brooch and create a pin fastener with wire, although a tradi­tional pin back will also be provided. There will be time in class to explore ideas and work along­side one another.
