The 1-2 hour workshop takes place in Woodcut Maps' designer/owner Catherine Herdlick's enchanting Mission-based garden and kitchen! During the workshop, under Catherine's supervision, you'll hand inlay the wood pieces, adhere the veneers to the substrate, sand the artwork flat, and finish your artwork. As you get your craft on, enjoy some light refreshments while everyone shares the stories behind their maps. The length of the workshop will depend on the complexity of your design as well as your individual skill level with the craft.Every attendee leaves with a beautiful handcrafted piece of original map artwork that is ready to hang (select size during booking: 6x6", 8x8", 9x16").
