Pyrography literally means fire-writing! There's no actual flames involved, but this is the craft of burning wood or leather to create permanent burn marks. We'll be using the best Pyrography irons with a range of different hot branding tips for you to use. Have a practise on some wood offcuts, before you start burning on wooden boxes, kitchen utensils, keyrings and more that you can take home with you.
You don't need any experience at all If you can hold a pen then you'll be able to do pyrography. There are 19 different iron tips to choose from. Some tips allow you to draw or write freehand just like a pen. You can either make up your own design, or use our templates to create patterns or words
If you're not confident drawing freehand, that's fine too because there are lots of lovely iron tips that are designed to brand shapes and designs in one go. All you need to do is make lines or rows of shapes to get a great end result with no drawing skills at all! Plus we'll show you how to transpose drawings from paper onto the wood.
- All the wood you need to experiment on
- A wooden box, wooden kitchen utensils and a keyring
- A glass of house wine or house beer
- A colour printed instruction booklet
- A cotton tote bag to take your creations home in
Who's it for: This is perfect for beginners. You must be over 18 to take part
