Pyrography: An Introduction

Detailed description

You don't have to be an artist and we will come to you.

Pyrography involves burning images onto timber and a number of other materials using heated metal tips not unlike a pen or pencil.

During this 4 hour workshop you will learn about;

* timber suitability and preparation,

* a variety of burning tools and tips and their uses,

* techniques for transferring your image or idea onto timber,

* burning techniques for successfully producing your original piece of art.

You will have the opportunity to practice the above with your picture of choice. We will provide pictures or designs for you to use or you may supply your own original drawing or photograph (in grey scale).


We will supply for use on the day, all necessary tools and Timber for burning on. You keep your work on the timber supplied at the conclusion of the workshop. You may bring along your own tools to practice with if you prefer.
