Janet reviewed: Learn pyrography - The art of drawing with fire

"I really enjoyed this pyrography class. We first used a variety of different nibs on assorted materials, then transferred a design on to wood using carbon paper and burned our first design. My favourite part was when we used a blowtorch to create an image using negative space. Lee was very patient and encouraging, and I would definitely recommend this class."

Lee Borthwick responded:

" Thank you Janet, so glad you enjoyed the class! All the best on your woodworking journey."

Pippa reviewed: Learn pyrography - The art of drawing with fire

"We organised this event for my mum's 85th birthday. She had got a pyrography pen but lacked confidence. My sisters and I along with my mum had a wonderful time with Lee. Mum is blind in one eye but with Lee’s patience, mum did follow instructions well and we all ended up with nice pieces to bring home. Whether you are a complete novice like we were you will have a fantastic experience. Highly recommended. Thanks for a lovely workshop. Also thank you for the wall hanging I purchased - it looks fab on my wall at home and a lovely memory of the day. Pippa"

Joyce P reviewed: Learn pyrography - The art of drawing with fire

"Excellent tuition from Lee, we started with mark-making techniques and progressed on to creating our own designs on a chopping board. You had the opportunity to be really creative once Lee had shared the basic techniques and exemplar. Came away inspired to do more pyrography in the future."

Lee Borthwick responded:

" Thank you for the wonderful feedback. Delighted you got so much out of the class Joyce- it was lovely to meet you. Look forward to seeing your future endeveours with pyrography."
