Apr 11| Pyrography (Woodburning): Hands-On Introduction CLICK TO READ OR COLLAPSE

9:30 am - 5 pm.

Cost: $85 (includes materials and project class)

Instructor: Michele Parsons, member of the International Association of Pyrographic Artists (IAPA) and recently published in Fox Chapel's Pyrography magazine.

Part I of 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 like 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 this class you will learn about different types of equipment, the three basic pen tips, safety, selecting and preparing your wood, transferring a pattern, coloring and finishing, and then practice techniques for burning.

Part II of this class: You will join the afternoon Spring Project class and follow along with Michele to burn your first Pyrographic masterpiece. Class size is limited to 6 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 a pencil/pen.

Please visit Michele's website at: www.ParsonsWoodArtistry.com
