Join us for a live virtual online class to kickstart your pyrography wood burning skills-- with all the tools and supplies provided!
Follow along and ask questions in real time with instruction and demonstration from our talented Teaching Artist via the Zoom video platform. You’ll log off with the inspiration to get started on your next project!
In this beginner-friendly class, you’ll learn the basic techniques of decorative wood burning to create unique handmade items.
Using a pen-like burning tool, you'll start by practicing various mark-making techniques to build confidence and explore the possibilities of this fun craft. Along the way, we'll discuss tools, wood selection, and safety considerations.
Next, you'll apply these new skills to decorate functional objects: drink coasters, bookmarks, and magnets! During class we'll get you started, including demonstrating how to transfer a design on paper to wood and advice on burning techniques and approaches to use. Various designs are included with the kit, but you could transfer your own custom design if desired.
Not only is this a relaxing hobby that will let you release a little creativity, but it also makes for a convenient craft you can do at home!
