I'm a local artist creating paintings from Lichtenberg Figures; a process of burning/etching wood with high voltage electricity. Each Guest will create a Lichtenberg figure under the observation of the Host Rodu. Once the figure is burned I'll provide instruction and guidance for the guest to create their own piece of art. As a juried local artist in Transylvania County in both the Transylvania County Handcrafters Guild and the WaterFalls Guild, my creations are unique and applicable to many wood medians. Let's explore your own creativity during your stay in Hendersonville.

We all enjoyed watching the patterns appear on the wood and then painting our pieces afterwards with Rod. He even pulled an image of the St. Augustine lighthouse for me to use on one of my pieces. We all had a great time. Thank you Rod.

We had a private party of 4. The experience was great and the keepsakes were amazing. We were encouraged to be creative and came up with some really good ideas. The pizza was an added bonus. Definitely book this class if you want to try something different and fun.

This was a fantastic experience! It was a chance to make some unique art and some new friends. Whether you are artistic or not, Rod makes this easy to do. We had a great time and went home with some art that we felt good about. Rod is a friendly, patient teacher who knows what he is doing. This is well worth your time.

This experience was very unique. I personally love finding art on my vacations to take home and remember the trip by. This experience fit the bill at an affordable cost. I now have three pieces of art to hang up on my wall when I get home from vacation. Don’t worry if you’re flying the pieces are small enough to easily fit in a suitcase to get it home. I would highly recommend this experience and rod and his wife, lali, were delightful to chat with during the experience.

We had a *shockingly* (pun intended) good time with Rod! Rod was a great instructor who guided us to create unique pieces of art. He helped us make what was most interesting to us and was a joy to talk to! We felt very safe and welcome at his house.
