Pyrography (Woodburning): Hands-On Introduction

Saturday, November 4, 2017, 9:30am - 5:00pm

Cost: $85 (includes materials)

Instructor: Michele Parsons, frequent author for Fox Chapel Publishing's Pyrography magazine and pyrography instructor for the International Woodcarving Congress, Fox Chapel Publishing Open House, and Southeastern Woodcarving School. In this class, you will learn basic pyrography (woodburning) techniques to add interest to your wood projects. This is not woodburning like you may have learned in scouts. Instead, it is very detailed, similar to a pen and ink drawing, yet easy to learn. If you can trace lines, you can create a drawing using this burning technique. Even students that say they can't draw a stick figure have been very pleased with their class accomplishments.

In the morning session of this class, you will learn about different types of equipment, basic pen tips, safety, selecting and preparing your wood, transferring a pattern, coloring and finishing. You'll then use the basic pens to practice woodburning techniques. After we break for lunch for an hour, you'll spend the afternoon session of the class following along with Michele to create your first pyrographic masterpiece on wood.

Class size is limited to 10 students. Bring your enthusiasm, variable temperature woodburning equipment and pens (some equipment is available for loan on a first-come basis requested upon registration and equipment will be available for purchase), and a pencil/pen.

Asheville's Turning Tuesday - lots of new faces
Asheville Turning Tuesday July 25th

customer feedback I just wanted to say thank you to Klingspor's Woodworking Shop of Asheville for hosting the class this weekend with Bill Johnson. Bill Johnson is a Professional Chip Carver and in my opinion, an excellent instructor. I was looking forward to taking this class for over a month. The class went well beyond all of my expectations and more. I'm new to the carving world and have only taken a 2 hour chip carving class prior to taking Bill's class. It was an excellent instruction from Bill on chip carving. Bill took us from a short history of chip carving, sharpening the knife, learning how to hold the knife, to the tools used in creating a chip carving, and finally to practicing some techniques of chip carving. At the end of the second day of class we had a finished a project to take home.

Thank you again, to Klingspor's Woodworking Shop for hosting the Chip Carving class with Bill Johnson. Kudos also goes to Klingspor for making sure the supplies were there for taking the class and for all that you do to put the class together. Everyone who works at Klingspor's Woodworking Shop in Asheville is so nice to deal with. I just love this store. Thank you to Bill Johnson for all he did to provide great instruction on Chip Carving. If you ever have the desire to learn Chip Carving Bill Johnson is the best.
