Balsa Wood Santa Ornaments


Join The MAC's resident woodworker, Brian Markowitz, to learn a variety of tools and techniques, and walk away with several hand-crafted wooden ornaments to hang on your Christmas Tree!
Students will learn to use gouge knives, flex knives, sandpaper, paint and brushes, to turn balsa wood blanks into carved ornaments.
You will carve up to four ornaments, and if there's time, you can paint them in class. If you're not able to finish painting in class, you can take your ornaments home to finish painting.

NOTE: This class is intended for adults, but children aged 12 and up are welcome if accompanied by an adult. If both adult and child are going to make their own ornaments, each will have to pay their own class fees. If the adult and child will work together, one class fee is sufficient.

Cost: $25

The cost of this class includes two hours of studio time with in-depth instruction, as well as materials.

You can pre-pay for this class by clicking 'purchase' below and then filling out the required information in the popup window.
