The art of burning images on to wood
In this workshop, you will craft a custom wood product - using the art of pyrography. First discovered centuries ago, we've updated the techniques of decorative wood burning by using a pen-like tool to create contemporary designs.
Using our pyrography pens, you'll work on wooden offcuts to practice the basic technique and then you'll move on to your masterpiece - etching a custom design. We offer an extensive collection of wood, ranging from jewellery boxes to chopping boards, and coat hangers to plant pots, as well as a fantastic library of images for you to trace.
Our tutors will demonstrate the following techniques:
- Importance of carbon paper
- Stencils and stamps
- Using the pyrography pen
- Temperatures for different effects
- Applying strokes and pressure
- Finishing designs with paint and oil
Tuition is free. Price for materials start from just £4.00.
Cost: There will be an additional charge for material used during the day.
