Woodworkers of all skill levels can learn to embellish everything from plaques and boxes to panels, furniture and turned bowls in a three-day workshop led by internationally known woodworkers Graeme Priddle and Melissa Engler at the Bainbridge Artisan Resource Network.

Running from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 16; Tuesday, Sept. 17; and Wednesday, Sept. 18; the sessions will explore design possibilities for adding texture and color using power carvers, wood burners, and layering of milk paint and acrylic paints.

This is a return visit to BARN by Priddle and Engler, officials said, based on raves from their visit last year.

The two currently work in Grovewood Village, home to 10 artist studios on a historic property in Asheville, North Carolina. They are internationally recognized for their gallery displays and embellishment workshops.

Priddle, originally from New Zealand, uses turned wooden objects as a starting point and then elaborately decorates the surfaces by carving, sanding, and burning in designs and textures.

Engler started out as a furniture maker but today focuses more on sculpture, and especially on adding color to her own work and to pieces that she and Priddle collaborate on.

The class is open to anyone at least 14 years old.
