Ideal for the beginner, this one day course is six hours in duration and aimed at adults aged sixteen years and over. It provides a full introduction to pyrography - "the art of designing with fire" which involves using a heated implement to burn designs on natural materials such as wood and leather.

Designed to be informative as well as practical, the day commences with a look at the historical aspect of pyrography. A thorough discussion of the advantages and disadvantages of various types of modern electric machines follows, together with advice on suitable surface materials. Each student has the use of a machine and the focus is on wood and leather.

The morning is spent learning how to handle the pen and investigating a variety of shading techniques. Utilising the knowledge acquired, students then go on to create their own unique wooden coaster sampler. Guidance on transferring a design, as well as advice on lettering and drawing a pencil guideline directly on to the surface, enables students to produce several more completed projects in wood and leather to take home.

Your tutor, Lincolnshire pyrography artist Susan Robey, has an extensive knowledge of the subject having specialised in the medium for over thirty years. Her aim is to guide, inspire and bring out the creative side in everyone. Enjoy learning and developing at your own pace in a relaxed environment at Susan's studio in the beautiful rural county of Lincolnshire.

Quality tuition is guaranteed with a maximum of three students on any course. Susan is also happy to arrange alternative mutually convenient dates for couples who wish to attend together.

Artistic ability is not essential as a choice of designs and resources are made available.

Want to review this course?

I had been thinking of doing Pyrography for quite some time, however, I am no artist and had no knowledge of this wonderful craft. The course was full of detail and gave me a great insight into different techniques, equipment and confidence in my ability. It was a thoroughly enjoyable day. Susan is great, very knowledgeable and encouraging. I would definitely recommend the course to any one thinking of doing pyrography!


I feel that the wood burning course might be compared with burning wood logs on an open fire. It was warm and comforting. it commandeered ones full attention, it exercised ones imagination (with faces in the fire), but all without any spitting, sparks or, the resultant ash: Pity it's not possible to dispose of used tissues.5

So thank you and best wishes.


Really enjoyable day. Very well presented, with plenty of hands on activities.


Had a great day and learnt a lot in a relaxed atmosphere. Susan is knowledgeable and passes on her expertise in an easy to understand manner. I have no artistic ability and was a little worried about some of the techniques we were going to practice, but Susan made them easy to achieve. I have already ordered the same pyrography machine as we used on the course. Would recommend Susan's courses to anyone who thinks this may be for them.


Excellent course to give me a hands on insight into pyrography, perfectly pitched for a complete beginner. Learnt some basic techniques which has given me the confidence to get going. Very helpful guide to the different machines and how to make and care for nibs. Useful info re. Wood types and health and safety. Susan is a very friendly, informative and inspiring tutor had a great day ... could easily have stayed longer.


An Excellent course. I have been doing pyrography for about 2 months but wanted to learn more techniques. Susan certainly provided that and also gave me many hints and tips for me to progress my pyrography hobby. My main aims for the course were to understand shading, choose the correct wood and how to finish my projects (varnish, wax etc), these goals were achieved and I feel more confident in my hobby.
