Pyrography Wood Burning Workshop


Thursday, June 28, 2018
6:00 - 8:00 pm

Class fee: $45

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?  

If you select the "Kit Purchase” option during registration (+$25), you will take home a pyrography kit that includes the wood burning tool with four different tips and three wooden cooking tools (spoon, fork, and spatula) to create more functional art you can use everyday!
