On this one day course you will learn the basics of pyrography.

You will learn practical tips  and  techniques on:

  • selection of timber
  • basic use of the burning tool, different types of tips and temperature controlled kits
  • drawing techniques  and methods of transposing onto the wood
  • basic finishing techniques
  • use of pre made blanks and making your own
  • PPE (personal protective equipment) selection  and  use
  • health  and  safety related to pyrography

At Ecclesall Woods we pride ourselves on the high quality teaching from our tutors  and  our low class numbers (max 5 for most classes)  and  a number of our courses also have an assistant.

We have found that smaller class sizes are more productive, un-rushed  and  allow students to learn more.

You will need to wear suitable clothing and footwear for working outdoors in this season. Please note this course will require a good level of manual dexterity on your fingers.
