Wood Burning Workshop

Get your pyro on! 🔥Pyrography that is!

Ok so we don’t actually set anything on fire, but we will be using some serious heat to create beautiful designs on our wooden projects!

What is pyrography?

py·rog·ra·phy
/pīˈräɡrəfē/
noun
1. the art or technique of decorating wood, leather, or cork by burning a design on the surface with a heated metallic point.

At this beginners pyrography workshop you’ll learn how to use a wood burning tool and how to use the different nibs to create a variety of wood burned effects in your designs. We’ll show you how to prep your wood, transfer designs, stain, and finish your masterpiece!

We’re actually using projects from our craft social project menu for this one, we’ll just be wood burning instead of painting, so you get a wide variety to choose from: beer bottle opener, jewelry box, clock, dog leash hanger, or key hanger. We’ll have a variety of stencil designs for each project or draw your own!

***You can also bring your own piece to burn: wood cutting board, wooden spoons, etc. We may tell you what you want to burn won’t work well for the workshop, if you want to make sure email us a picture at info@crafts-drafts.com

Why we love this workshop:
It smells great! Burning the designs into the wood makes it smell like a fireplace or campfire in the best way. (It’s not smoky though in case you were wondering!) It’s also one of those things that it’s just so inexplicably satisfying to do.
