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.
