About the Course
Learn pyrography techniques at the Heritage Skills Centre at Lincoln Castle.
This new one day course will see you learn the specific techniques and requirements needed to burn designs onto paper with a spooky Halloween theme.
The course provides a full introduction to the decorative art of pyrography which involves using a specialised electrically heated implement to burn a design freehand into a surface. The morning will be spent learning which types of paper are suitable, what heat setting is required and how to enhance monochrome burnings with colour to best effect. You'll then have the opportunity to create both pictures and greeting cards either of your own scary design or from those provided - perfect for decorating the house this Halloween.
The course will run from 10:00 to 16:00.
This course is suitable for age 16 + and is aimed at those with some knowledge of the craft or who have already completed the introductory pyrography course, but they are designed in such a way as to also be suitable for those with little or no experience. Please wear comfortable casual clothes with closed toe shoes.
The Heritage Skills Centre at Lincoln Castle has been offering hands on experience and training since 2013. See our website to browse the wide range of taster days, short courses and demonstrations in craft, conservation and traditional building skills.
