PYROGRAPHY
"WRITING WITH FIRE"

I would like to invite you to a pyrography workshop at Misty Ceramics to create your own piece of art burned onto wood.

This is an un-rushed workshop in a relaxed studio environment. If the sun is shining we'll go alfresco!

 

For thousands of years pyrography has been an artform used to make ordinary, everyday objects beautiful. My aim is to ensure that you enjoy everything this fascinating, relaxing artform has to offer using wood-burning tools.

Suitable for beginners, no prior knowledge or art skills are required.

What to expect

A two and a half hour, hands on course with Karen.

Spend the first part of the session finding out about pyrography, share ideas and connect with your inner artist. We can think about your design. If you’re unsure then I can offer advice. You will learn about the wood burning tool, use of temperature control to create different effects, how to transpose designs. You will also learn how to hold the pen, the correct strokes and pressure to apply.

There are demonstration pieces for you to practice on before crafting  your design. Pick an item to work on. I have a range of boxes, plaques, spoons, boards for you to choose from (there’s a small nominal price to cover the cost of the wooden item you choose)

Tracing paper /graphite paper is available if you're unsure of drawing free-hand.

If you wish to, you can complete your masterpiece using watercolours or acrylics, and then we'll seal your work so that it remains beautiful once you take it home. 

You will leave the studio with your own unique keepsake… and a new skill!
