Our Popular Image Transfer to Wood Workshop is Back!

Daisy McClellanComment

In case you missed this popular workshop last time, you can now join us for the next Image Transfer to Wood Workshop on Thursday August 11th, 2016 at 7:00pm. If you've been to gather, chances are the distressed wood pieces of all shapes and sizes featuring photos of San Francisco icons and California coastline caught your attention. Chelsea has made a business of transferring her photos on to wood by hand with her company Cuppa Fog for the past 4 years. We carry her beautiful San Francisco themed items in the shop, each piece unique according to the wood's natural grain pattern. Now you have a chance to learn her special tips and tricks! 

In this class, Chelsea will teach you: Wood preparation, image transfer application, removal of paper, distressed-finish techniques, sealant method, and how to apply hardware on the back of your new art.

 Image Transfer to Wood Workshop Includes:

-2 wood transfers (5x7 inches)

-Vintage themed San Francisco photos*

-All art materials

This two hour class also includes wine and snacks and a discount on merchandise in the store that night. No experience needed - all levels welcome! Purchase your spot here.

Image Transfer to Wood Workshop - Thursday August 11th, 2016 - 7:00p-9:00p: $35-$40*

*If you use our vintage themed San Francisco photos the cost is $35 but if you'd like to customize it more you can use your own photos for $40. If you are using your own photos we recommend good contrast and high resolution digital files. We advise you to stay away from portraits (people or animal), as they are tougher to make sure the distressing doesn’t happen over important parts like faces. Please email pictures to by Sunday August 7th.

Registration closes at midnight on Sunday August 7th for custom pictures ($40) and Tuesday August 9th for SF themed option ($35).
