Custom Wood-Inlay Map Making Workshop - 8"x8" Wall Art - with Woodworker Catherine
Learn the art of fine wood marquetry while crafting a bespoke Woodcut Map based on one of your favorite places. Add it to your own art collection, or give it as a gift! Upon booking, you'll be asked to specify any location on the planet. Recommended locations include hometowns, cherished vacation spots, university campuses, and locations of major life events like proposals, weddings, and births. The truly intrepid can even design their own map using Woodcut Maps's online design tool. IMPORTANT: Please note that if you do not specify which location you'd like to base your map on at least 48 hours before the class, you will be creating a lovely map of San Francisco. In advance of the workshop, Woodcut Maps will verify your map design and lasercut the necessary wood veneers just for you. The 2-3 hour workshop takes place in Woodcut Maps' sunny Bayview-based studio. During the workshop, under our woodworkers' supervision, you'll hand inlay the wood pieces, adhere the veneers to the substrate, sand the artwork flat, and finish your artwork. Near the end of the workshop, enjoy a glass of wine, beer or juice while everyone waits for the finish to dry and shares the stories behind their maps. Every attendee leaves with a beautiful handcrafted piece of original map artwork that is ready to hang (8"w x 8"h x 0.375"d). Cost of workshop includes all professional design fees, materials, beverage and instruction. This class is a great activity for a date, birthday party, bachelorette celebration, teambuilding, or corporate offsite.
Hi! I'm a game designer and woodworker! I started Woodcut Maps back in 2011 with my husband Gabe. Our online design tool lets anyone design beautiful maps. And our workshops let anyone make them! I've made our workshops foolproof. :)
