Turnin’ and Burnin’ Wearable Art

June 17, 2018 – June 23, 2018

Janice Levi

In this workshop students will create wearable art while learning basic and advanced pyrography techniques used to decorate it. The art will include a barrel-shaped purse and jewelry such as a bangle, pendant or earring set. Because a purse is initially a large lidded box with some modifications, participants will learn to turn by using hollowing equipment and spindle turning tools. The jewelry pieces require cross grain work, so you can improve your bowl gouge techniques. Since pyrography is an excellent enhancement technique, students will learn how to apply patterns to their pieces and how to burn them successfully. Open to all skill levels.


Janice Levi has been a drama teacher and school counselor for at-risk students. She began turning 16 years ago and has a special interest in wearable art and pyrography. Levi is a member of AAW, Gulf Coast Woodturners located in Houston, Texas and the Brazos Valley Woodturners located in Waco, Texas. She demonstrates in clubs and symposiums and teaches classes in woodturning.
