Surface embellishment is a way to add visual interest and value to your work. It can be used to differentiate good work from work that is truly remarkable.
Imagine opening a cabinet door and being greeted by a burst of color or delighting in the texture of a carved drawer front. Consider the visual impact of ebonized legs supporting a table top or the discovery of the gilded interior of a box. These are all examples of ways embellishment can be used to enhance a project. These techniques can be used on furniture, turned objects, boxes and more. They can even be used to transform a cheap, mass-produced item into a lovely, thoughtful gift.
In this 2-day action-packed technique class students will learn a variety of ways to embellish their work. In between demos there will be plenty of time for hands-on practice of the techniques. Students will be encouraged to play and explore as they learn to take their work to a whole new level of WOW!
