    Are you looking for a way to enhance your gourd or wooden bowls?  Come and learn how adding simple designs with pyrography will add value and appeal to the most basic bowl.  You will burn a sampler design inside a border on your bowl, learning while burning what the different tips can do.

    The Instructor will provide a tutorial with pattern ideas.

    Students will need to bring a prepared gourd or wooden bowl as well as any pyrography equipment they have.  Please let me know in advance if you need to borrow equipment, so I can have enough equipment available.  Although you may not be able to complete all the burning during class time depending on the size of your bowl, you will go away with a tutorial which will help you finish on your own.  

    Gourders:  You may finish the inside of your bowl, but do not put a finish on the outside of the gourd.

    Wood turners:  You can mark a 2" (or larger depending on the size of your bowl) border situated an inch or so below your bowl's rim while turning.  Please do not put a finish on the outside of your bowl until after you finish the burning.

    Looking for an interesting new skill? Come and learn about Kumihimo.  Kimumihimo means "gathering threads"; it is an ancient form of Japanese braiding using a variety of stringing material to make cords.  You will prepare 8 strings for the Kumihimo disc, and learn how to make a round cord that can be used for necklaces, bracelets, edging for clothing, straps for purses and numerous other uses.

    During the class you will complete a braclet ( choose to make a double or single braclet) and learn how to add a clasp.  You will then cut cords and set up your loom to make a length of kimihimo braid suitable for a necklace which you will complete at home.

    Teacher Supplies: 6" Kumihimo disc, colourful rattail cord, end clasp, glue, instructions.
