Pyrography Wood Burning Workshop
Upcoming class sessions:
Thursday, January 31, 2019 6:30-8:30pm
Sunday, February 24, 2019 11:00am-1:00pm
Class fee: $49
In this workshop you'll craft a custom wood cutting board using the art of pyrography-- don’t worry, it’s nothing illegal! You’ll learn the basic techniques of decorative wood burning, which, although dating back centuries, can be expressed with fun, contemporary designs. Using a pen-like burning tool, you’ll work on small wood pieces to practice the basic technique. Next you’ll move on to your masterpiece, etching a custom design (templates provided) onto a 13.5”x7.5” premium wood board that you can use for general food chopping or serving. All supplies and equipment provided.
(optional) Would you like a kit to continue the fun at home after class?
Select the "Class Registration & Pyrography Kit Bundle" option (+$26) and you will take home from class a kit with everything you need to continue the burning fun. Purchasing the bundle offers a 20% discount on the kit compared to buying it outside of the class session! The kit includes the wood burning tool with four different tips, small wood piece for practicing, sandpaper, and three wooden cooking tools (spoon, fork, and spatula) to create more functional art you can use everyday.
