Intro to Pyrography (Woodburning)

Instructor: Michele Parsons
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.

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.
