About the event

In this three-part class students will learn how to draw designs on aluminum tooling foil to create unique embossed metal wall art. Because this foil is 36 gauge or .005” thick it is pliable yet strong - students will discover how fun it is to draw into and manipulate. Once the designs are complete students will learn how to mount their artwork to a French cut corner birch plaque. In the third-class students will work on the finishing touches and enhance their plaques by using colorful markers.
