Woodburning 101

Hands-On Introduction to Pyrographic Arts

Suzanne Wilka - CZT

Have you ever been curious about adding woodburning to your craft repertoire?

 Not sure how you would use it
Not sure how to get started
Not sure you wanted to make the investment in the tools needed to get started?

If so, this 2 hour hands-on class is for you.  You will have the opportunity to work with two types of wood burning pens - a single temperature craft tool and a variable temperature unit using several styles of pens.  You will have the opportunity to learn several wood burning techniques and have the opportunity to burn on both wood and paper.

No Experience Needed

Cost  $35  - Instructor will provide pyrographic tools and class materials.

Optional - if you own a woodburning pen feel free to bring it to class.
