The Art of Fire and Fromage


Tuesday, April 10, 2018
7:00 - 9:00 pm

Class fee: $50

Craft cheese and crafting! Join us for a hands-on evening of cheese tasting and decorative wood burning in partnership with Atlas Obscura Society Portland.

The class will begin with an informative cheese tasting experience hosted by our location host, Chizu, who bill their tastings as a “sushi-like experience for cheese lovers.” 

Next up, you’re going to craft a custom, premium wood cheese board to take home using the art of pyrography-- don’t worry, it’s nothing illegal! You’ll learn the basic techniques of wood burning, which, although dating back centuries, can be expressed with fun, contemporary designs. Using a pen-like burning tool, you’ll practice on small wood pieces to work on 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 cheese, as well as general cutting.

All supplies, equipment ,and cheese provided.
