Course Fee: £85
Would you like to have a go at a traditional folk art? Have you ever fancied burning designs into a natural surface such as wood or leather? This course is an introduction to anyone who is interested in the art of wood burning or pyrography.
The course will start with the basic techniques of pyrography focusing on wood, experimenting with different lines, textures and shading. Once you’ve grasped the basics you can move on to your own project and take home with you your own coaster, keyring, necklace, wooden sign or piece of art. Don’t worry if you’re not naturally ‘arty’, inspiration and designs will be provided but feel free to bring your own projects and ideas.
So, whether you are looking for a new hobby or maybe you carve your own spoons or bowls and want to take your designs one step further this is the course for you.
This course is taught in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere by Nadine Grundy who has over 15 years’ experience teaching art, crafts and woodwork.
Please let us know if you have any specific requirements or needs. All materials and tool use are provided for you on the day. Refreshments and biscuits throughout the course. Please bring a packed lunch, notebook and pen and wear suitable clothes for working outdoors.
