In this class, you’ll discover doodling with intention through metal embossing. This technique is sculptural, Zen-like, and simply gorgeous to look at. Instructor Charr will teach participants how to use embossing tools and the various techniques. Then you’ll embark on a type of doodling that allowing freedom while creating line and design. What at first glance may look complicated is actually very simple— each deliberate stroke at a time. Dots, lines, curves, circles and squares all flowing into one another. Per Charr, “The intention is to be adventurous. We may not even know specifically where we are going or what it will look like in the end. It can almost be a kind of artistic meditation. The beautiful part is you don’t need to be an ‘artist’. You’re already creative even if you don’t realize it.”
